President Bowman tells Laird Brown how it was at Kent State.
Standing upon a special flag-bedecked platform on June 18,
1912, is Dr. John E. McGilvrey. He was selected as the first
President, and now delivers his principal address:
"There is justification for that significant German proverb:
'Whatever you would have appear in a nation's life you must pu'
into its schools.' And whatever you would have appear in
the school in the form of knowledge, ideals, moral strength, or
courage to meet life's responsibilities, you must present to the
impressionable life of the child through the life of a teacher."
Rain begins to fall as President McGilvrey concludes his
speech, a "baptism" of the infant school, he says.
"Developing Human Resources^^
The choice of our theme for this, our Semicentennial Year,
was not made by me; but I would not know how better to express the
philosophy which has guided and inspired me during almost 16 years
of service on this campus. I have no doubt that our human resources
— people — are our most important and valuable assets and that the
future of our country depends on how well we develop these
resources in their earlier years. That is the chief responsibility
of an institution such as ours.
There are many different kinds of activities scheduled in
this, our Semicentennial Year. Noted scholars are speaking
at convocations and conducting seminars which will enrich and
stimulate the intellectual life of the students, faculty and staff.
Noted artists in the fields of music and art will bring pleasure
During this year a faculty committee has conscientiously selected
some of our distinguished alumni for special citation and
recognition. I believe that these are the occasions in which I take
the greatest pleasure and satisfaction: These times when we honor our
sons and daughters who have distinguished themselves in so many
different and important professions. There are teachers, scientists,
physicians, leaders in many walks of the education professions,
including the Christian ministry.
For more than a decade and a half, I have watched with affection
and deep interest thousands of young men and women who have come
and gone from these halls. My interest is in human beings, in
the young people whose trained talents and whose development are so
important in our society. Size of the institution and the
consequent responsibilities have pushed the President farther and
farther away from the individual student; and this I continue to regret.
If I were asked to describe the change I see in young people, it
would be largely in their favor. I have been pleased to observe
the almost uniform courtesy and respect the student body has
shown me and my office. It seems to me that in the last two or three
years, in particular, there has been a renaissance of interest in
intellectual achievement and in efforts to solve the many moral
and spiritual questions with which youth is increasingly
confronted in our complex world. I have been heartened by student
interest in the scholastic standards of the University, their
concern about cheating in examinations, their interest in
eligibility regulations, examinations, and a dozen or more other
facets we associate with quality in education.
I have said many times in these years that it is men and women who
make an institution of this kind effective and efficient. Bricks and
mortar, essential as they are, are only necessary adjuncts to the
human elements. When I speak of human elements, I am thinking
of the faculty and staff which must be strong, able, courageous and
working in harmony; I am thinking of the student body; of the
governing Board; and of our graduates and the contribution they may
make by their continuing interest in their alma mater.
Although my tenure as your President is nearing its close,
I can assure you that as long as there is life left in me this
University and its progress will continue to be the major concern of my life.
William S. Kent
On a University Birthday
by Don Webb
"Fifty years ago a great thing happened,"
remarks President Bowman to 18-year-old
Laird Brown, a freshman journalism major
from Twin Lakes. They pause near a large oak
tree by a driveway outside the Hub. A man who
has devoted his Hfe to training and guiding
young people into maturity gazes across a shady
green campus filled with oaks and pines. "Let's
imagine it's May 19, 1910," he continues.
"That's when Governor Judson Harmon signed
a bill passed by the Ohio General assembly to
authorize the building of two new teacher
training schools in Ohio."
It's a rainy Tuesday morning the following
September, President Bowman tells Laird, and
a commission of five men stand alone near the
Erie depot in downtown Kent. Damp and wet,
they're completing a tour, including 14 north-
eastern Ohio towns, to pick sites for the state
normals. They choose finally a magnificent
natural park at Bowling Green, and because of
its favorable location and its beauty, they choose
a farm donated by William S. Kent, local bank
president and publisher of the Kent "Courier."
Downtown Kent in
1909 is a scene of
activity. A slogan
calls it the "home of
hump and hustle."
Merrill and Lowry halls are erected in 1912
to become the first buildings at Kent State Normal.
Elsewhere, in 1910, another philanthropist is
establishing the Carnegie Endowment for Inter-
national Peace. Irving Berlin is composing
"Alexander's Ragtime Band." Stoves, electric
fans, irons, vacuum cleaners and hair driers are
invading the American home.
Now workmen up on Kent's Normal hill are
chopping, digging, sweating. "Kent State
Normal! Kent State Normal! Finest school in
all the West!" yells a chorus. "Kent State
Normal! Kent State Normal!" Then a professor
of Kent State meets some friends from Bowling
Green one evening.
"You should see how Kent State is rising,"
"Yes, I was there only yesterday," replies
one of his Bowling Green friends.
"Ah," says he, "you should have seen it this
Finally the corner stone of the classroom-
administration building (later known as Mer-
rill hall) is ready to be laid. It's Tuesday, June
18, 1912, and in another year the institution will
be in operation. Striding along a worn path to
the special flag-bedecked platform is a man of
medium height, with keen, deep-sunken eyes
and a kindly, strong-lined face; these things
make him handsome. He displays a confident
charm that makes the people he passes know
without being told that this is Dr. John E. Mc-
Gilvrey. He was selected by the first Board of
Trustees, appointed by Governor Harmon, as
the first President.
President McGilvrey, age 44, glances at the
classroom-administration building under con-
struction and then at a partially complete resi-
dence hall (later Lowry hall). The buildings
must excite him. Each will be two stories in
height, with a "basement" on the ground level.
Principles of teaching, history of education and
psychology will be taught in the building on
McGilvrey's right. This building will have 30
rooms for offices, classrooms and laboratories.
The largest room will be a chapel-auditorium on
the top floor. The building will house all depart-
ments and administrative offices, as well as the
training school. The dormitory on the Presi-
dent's left will be constructed in suites of three
rooms. Each suite will accommodate four young
women with a study and two bedrooms, for a
total of 80 persons. A kitchen and accompany-
ing dining rooms, capable of serving 250 stu-
dents, will be included. McGilvrey mounts the
platform, and in a few moments he delivers the
"The Normal school," President McGilvrey
believes, "is not limited by a narrow profes-
sional aim. In the classroom and even in the
actual work of training the ultimate aim is to
broaden and deepen, to quicken and refine the
life of its students."
It is dripping rain when he concludes his
speech, a "baptism" of the infant school, Mc-
Gilvrey says. Then, Frank Merrill, board mem-
ber, drives the corner stone into place, not guess-
ing the building will one day bear his name.
The ulidersigned hereby agrees to pay the
sum o/''/u.'C^*^ s^<-i'-'^ Dollars to The Kent National

eastern Ohio Normal School, which amount I agree to
pay on or Itefore February 1, 1911.

Local merchants and townspeople pledged sums of
money to secure a normal school in Kent.

"Trained teachers are needed immediately,
Laird," President Bowman continues his story.
"Thousands of them! Things begin to roll. The
first extension program in Ohio is started by
Kent State Normal School. Instructors are
hired, classes organized, centers established.
Full credit given! That's how President McGil-
vrey is bridging the gap of time from founding
until campus classes start."
McGilvrey's purpose, explains President
Bowman, is to bring the school to the students
since the students cannot come to the unfinished
school. There are a total of 29 classes at 20 cen-
ters, enrolling 849 students. Four instructors,
John T. Johnson, George E. Marker, May H.
Prentice and Helen M. Atkinson, teach the ex-
By 1913, the $150,000 state appropriated
institution on Normal hill is open to classes, of-
fering a two-year program. There is no road
extending across the college campus. There are
no sidewalks of any kind and few outside lights.
Early board of trustees, l.-r.: John A. McDowell,
Mrs. William S. Kent, James P. Seward, Edwin F.
Moulton, Frank A. Merrill, Peter W. Doyle, John
E. McGilvrey, George F. Hammond, William S. Kent.
The brush and trees are so thick that Main street
cannot be seen from the hilltop.
First roll call! Forty-seven students and 20
teachers answer. Their cost for instruction?
Why — it's absolutely free! And board? Room?
Laundry? Books? Stationery? Why — all for as
little as $60 total for a 12-week term!
McGilvrey by this time is thinking of in-
augurating a four-year course for high school
teachers, principals and superintendents, lead-
ing to the degree of B.Ped. (bachelor of ped-
agogy ) if there should develop a demand in this
field of work.
Meanwhile, the United States is thinking of
inaugurating a president. Kent carries Wood-
row Wilson in November with 524 votes to
Roosevelt's 308, Debs' 213, and Taft's 199. Wil-
son wins, and, later, the Federal Reserve Sys-
tem is born. Then, other "firsts" are scored.
First Federal income tax law; first ship through
the Panama Canal; first transcontinental tele-
phone call. And, at Kent State Normal, a first of
another kind is taking place — the first graduat-
ing class. Ohio Governor James M. Cox is de-
livering the commencement address. It's July
29, 1914, and 34 students will be graduated to-
day before a crowd of 3,000 persons.
July. It's an exciting month for K. S. N. in
many ways. Besides graduating its first class,
Kent's extension-class enrollment has passed
the 1,600 mark. On-campus enrollment has
jumped from 47 a year ago, to 537; there now
are 96 men and 441 women. A contract was
awarded last November to construct the audi-
torium, library, gymnasium and office building
(later the present Administration building),
and this month a second contract was awarded
to build an agriculture and science building
(later Kent hall). Plans also are being consid-

ered to build another dormitory and a heating
and power plant. It's an exciting month, too,
because now McGilvrey is making plans to pro-
vide a four-year course leading to the degree of
bachelor of education (B.Ed.).
Kent State Normal School, in a very real
sense, is McGilvrey's school. He cares for it —
loves it as if it were his own. He and Dean John-
son plant grass seed about the buildings. They
set out young trees and shrubs. McGilvrey
plants every sprig of ivy; he prunes trees, he
trims bushes and he chops deadwood. Also, the
students, in a very real sense, are the Presi-
dent's students. The numbers are few, and he
prides himself on his ability to call most of them
By 1915, however, McGilvrey's ability to
recall names is becoming increasingly difficult.
There are more and more students arriving each
quarter. Already the need has been felt to es-
tablish a four-year program. The faculty is
growing fast: there are Margaret Dunbar, li-
brary science; David Olson, geography; Nina S.
Humphrey, public school art; Clinton S. Van
Deusen, manual training; May H. Prentice,
director of training; and Emmet C. Stopher,
training school, plus 15 others.
It's July again and old faces are back.
Alumni Day is being held. About 200 graduates
have elected Albert S. Gregg the first associa-
tion president. Alumni are talking over "old
times" and someone mentions the Walden
Dramatic club, the first Kent student society. It
was organized in 1913 soon after class work
began. The Walden club, in addition to its prim-
ary purpose, publishes the first yearbook: a 91-
page, 65-picture edition with 25 pages devoted
to advertisements. The chestnut trees on cam-
pus suggested its name — "The Chestnut Burr."
Thirty-four students hear Governor James
Cox deliver the first commencement address.
The Walden Dramatic club starts in December,
1913 and publishes the first "Burr."

Kent hall becomes the third sfruetiu'e
to stand on Normal hill in 1914.
In 1915, the state legislature appropriates
$120,000 for a dormitory, Moulton hall.
"Later, the trees will succumb to the dread
blight," Laird is told, "but the name of the
annual will remain." Concerning the Alumni
organization. President Bowman adds:
"The association will continue to function.
By 1960, Laird, there'll be about 19,000 grad-
uates of Kent and close to 100,000 former stu-
dents. Alumni will be iound in every state in
the union and in 27 foreign countries."
George A. Bowman ( whose teaching experi-
ence began in a tiny one-room schoolhouse in
Morrow County, Ohio) and his young compan-
ion are strolling away from the giant oak near
the Hub and are moving slowly across the front
campus. Late model automobiles with swept-
back fenders can be seen sailing down Main
street. The President turns to Laird.
"Remember. I said a contract was awarded
to construct several new buildings? Well, these
buildings are now complete. Two stand side by
side, right over there, you see, next to Merrill
hall. When they were being built, four circus
tents had been raised on Normal hill to house
the overflow of large summer registrations.
Classroom work, assemblies, even graduations
were held in these tents."
KSN Turns To Sports

pied. Bowman continues, the school fielded its

first basketball team in the 1914-1915 season,
winning three games against local teams but
losing all college competition. The squad played
its first intercollegiate game in the newly- com-
pleted auditorium building in the "Atrium." On
January 28, 1915, the "Normal High School
News" reported the game as follows:
"The Normal quintet was defeated by the
Otterbein machine, Friday evening, at 8 o'clock,
56 to 5. It looked as if Otterbein could keep
three balls away from the Normal. Carpenter
shot the only field basket for the Normal; Cort
shot three foul baskets. There was a large at-
tendance — about two hundred. Goodrich led
the cheering. Normal did well considering it
was their first big game."
The baseball team also played during this
season. The K. S. N. sluggers won their first
game over Baldwin-Wallace, 7-6. They lost to
Mt. Union and twice to Hiram, Mt. Union
emerging with a winning 9-3 score, and with
Hiram also defeating Kent, 16-4 and 15-3.
Then came football. But after two scrim-
mages with the local high school team, the sport
is abandoned. Not until 1920 will Kent Play
its first intercollegiate football game. At that
time they'll play against Ashland on October
30, losing 6-0. Kent's next game will be played
against Bowling Green, with Kent losing 7-0.
Paul Chandler will serve as Kent's coach as well
as head of the department of education.
Why is Kent's early record anything but
glorious? Some say it's because "McGilvrey

McQilvrey Symholizes Progress
Indeed, classroom work is McGilvrey's main
interest. His school is offering courses from
household arts to manual training; there are
food, clothing and the home, woodworking, me-
chanical drawing and homeplanning, sociology,
economics, agriculture, psychology, and art and
President McGilvrey, who frequently quotes
Emerson, believes in non-conformity and inde-
pendence of thought. He does not grade by let-
ters or numbers as most colleges are doing;
instead, he grades them by simply issuing a
"white slip" (passing) or a "blue slip" (fail-
ing). His college is not structured on the semes-
ter basis as are most colleges; instead, his oper-
ates on the quarter plan.
A man with vision. President McGilvrey
foresees the growth of the institution. He fore-
sees its responsibilities in an area rapidly ex-
panding in industry and population. The idea
of the Normal school giving its students know-
ledge of the problems and principles of teach-
ing, of the Normal school developing originality
and individuality, of the Normal school keeping
alive in the pupil-teacher a sense of the dignity
and worth of teaching, spurs his dreams, and
Laboratory facilities are provided and
emphasis is given to individual work.

branded as "an illegitimate pastime for Normal
students" by Ruby La Verne Downey in her
prize-winning essay, "Normal Students Should
Not Habitually Attend the Movies." It appears
in the "Kentonian," the college weekly. Any-

campus activities are curtailed, and a new one

semblies and meetings. It will be brought out
once each year, at least, in rememberance of
those who fought the war to end wars.

Students return from war. Some are bitter,
many are disillusioned. They are the "lost gen-

Age gets its name from a restless style of music,
someone says, "that makes dancing an athletic
experience." Forty million people rush out to
the movies every week. Flappers, bobbed hair,
rolled stockings, smoking in public and coonskin
coats typify this glittering era when business
booms, everybody spends money and almost no-
body sits at home.

name the following year. Karl C. Leebrick is

ist and he promptly makes sweeping changes.

of Liberal Arts and organized in four divisions.
Agriculture and library science are dropped.

What once was the small Normal School of

farm-land and virgin forest choked with briars
is now a dynamic University, "Dedicated to De-
veloping Human Resources.'" The University's
glory is not confined to the memories of those
who recall its bygone charm. Its glory is in the
excitement of today. It is in the dreams of its
President, its faculty, its students and its
alumni. It is in the minds of those who prepare
for the exciting needs of today and the days
ahead — for new horizons.
"As we look ahead contemplating this great
urban and industrial area of northeastern
Ohio," observes President Bowman, "we get
some notion of the enormous responsibility for
higher education, to an area containing more
than half the population of the State, which
rests upon Kent State University."

NTFC scores big hit with ^^Damn Yankees''
Baseball season opened the second time last year
with the NTFC presentation of "Damn Yankees"
under the direction of Charles Kurtak. Adapted from
"The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant," the musi-
cal is the story of Joe Hardy, the world's greatest
baseball player. A typical TV baseball fan, Joe
trades his soul to that suave and sinister fellow, the
Devil, for the Yankees' pennant loss. Transformed
into the young man of his dreams, Joe helps his
favorite team, the Washington Senators, win the
pennant. Ordered by the Devil to keep Joe from
returning to his old life in Hannibal, Mo., Lola's en-
ticements are not too tempting, and Joe runs back
home. The crack of the bat, the raucous sounds from
the stands and the whack of the ball against the
glove were all part of "Damn Yankees." It was the
fourth NTFC Broadway musical production.
The Devil, George Schroeder, in the guise of Mr.
Applegate, does a bit of reminiscing
about the "Good Old Days."
Bob Rice and Mary Ellen Doran ask if there's a
doctor in the house as thev do their version of
"Who's Got the Pain When They Do the Mambo?"
Joe Hardy, played by Jerry Maston, would not be
so unconcerned if he knew that "Whatever Lola
(Mary Ellen Doran) Wants, Lola Gets."
Unhappy wives voice their own opinions over
being left "baseball widows" by their husbands
during the Washington Senators' games.
At the same time, husbands Stanton Downs
and Dick Goddard sound off against
those "Damn Yankees."

Burlap sacks, egg shells and pies littered the lawn
of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house as the fourth annual
May Day Relays came to an end. Co-sponsored by
Gamma Phi Beta and the Sig Eps, the event tried the
athletic prowess of 24 organizations. Members com-
peted in coke-chugging, balloon-swatting, egg toss-
ing and pie eating. Students had that "egg-in-the-
face" look. Alpha Gamma Delta won the most events
to take first place in the women's division while the
Varsity K men took the men's top honors.

Kappa Sigma winning the MSA soap box derby. The
sky darkened as the motorcade with Queen Jeanne
Huebner and her attendants, Jan Kozy, Mary Cum-

Springs park. The girls spent the rest of the day
fighting to protect their hairdos. Contestants braved
the mud and soggy atmosphere to compete for tro-
phies. The judges, stranded on a float in the middle
of the lake, squinted through the downpour to award
first place in the Greek rowing contests to Delta
Gamma and Alpha Tau Omega. Moulton hall and
the Industrial Arts club rowed to victory in the inde-
pendent women's and men's divisions. Sigma Phi
Epsilon took the gladiator contest award and Alpha
Tau Omega pulled its opponent across the line to win
the tug-a-war. Emcees Bill Cash and Dave Schiska

Instead of shorts and suntan lotions, the spectators
at the 1959 Regatta sported blankets, umbrellas and
plastic coverings as they huddled together in soggy
masses to protect themselves from the cold, miser-
able weather. As the afternoon rained on, the crowds
drifted toward the shelter of the refreshment stand.
Even under its dripping eaves there were few dry
spots. Inside the booth Theta Sigma Phi members,

court picked their way from Lowry hall through the

Swank watched, Marilyn Hall was crowned queen
of the 46th annual Campus Day by Bill Lahl, student
council president. Now a tradition, the colorful May-

Small parade sparkles at start of a grey day
Campus Day had a serious side this year. Each of the
undergraduate colleges held seminars on current
problems. All alumni, students and parents were
invited to attend. An alumnis luncheon was held at
noon. Visitors were also guests at dormitory
and Greek open houses and coffee hours. A
carillion concert echoed across the campus to mark
the midway point of the big day. Although the sky
was grey, not many worried about the floats being
ruined in the downpour. There were few floats.
Grand Marshall Charles Paulas, mayor of Kent, led
one of the shortest parades ever before the largest
crowd in Campus Day's history, 11,000. Lowry hall,
in the independent women's division, won the only
trophy for its "Swing Into Spring" mobile garden.
The sun darted behind the clouds as the first of 26
groups began songfest. Girls in thin, summer dresses
shivered as cool breezes blew across the natural
amphitheater. But the cold wind did not hurt Engle-
man hall as it won first place in the independent
women's division. Kappa Kappa Psi topped the inde-
pendent men. Even as those in the first division were
singing, the spectators were slowly drifting away.
It was too damp to sit on the ground and too tiring to
stand. Finally the sun was hidden behind the clouds.
While Delta Gamma sorority sang its first place song,
the rain began falling. Plastic scarves came out and
umbrellas popped up. Most of the crowd ran for
cover. Few were left to hear Delta Upsilon, fra-
ternity division winner, sing. Delta Tau Delta must
have had advance word from the weatherman. The
last group to sing, their black umbrellas were useful
as they waited in the drizzle. As the last notes of
songfest faded away, the day ended for parents and
most alumni, but was only beginning for the stu-
dents. Couples converged on Memorial gym to dance
to the music of Les Elgart and his orchestra and to
acclaim trophy winners. It was the climax of a
memorable Campus Day. The rain was still falling
as the lights faded and campus quieted after a busy
Kent graduates 922
Graduation in June marked the end and the begin-
ning for the 922 who received their diplomas at the
46th annual commencement. The campus hardly had
time to recover before 4060 students came for the
first summer session. This plus visits by prospective
freshmen attending summer institutes made the
campus a busy place. Again the Artists and Speak-
ers Series presented outstanding entertainment to
Kent students. Featured in one of the programs
were Heidi Krall and Brian Sullivan, Metropolitan
Opera stars. Ending the summer was Summer Com-
mencement when 520 received degrees. Dr. David

players, each wearing his son's number, watched the
game from the bench. During half-time ceremonies
the crowd was entertained by the combined bands of
23 Northeastern Ohio high schools and the Kent
State marching band. The Amherst high school band
was awarded a trophy for having the most members
coming the farthest distance. 1959 Dad's Day was
the first to honor women students' fathers also. The
various dormitories and sororities held coffee hours
and open houses after the game. The annual Dad's

Showers take first place Homecoming Day 1959
Homecoming Day 1959 was preceded by a night of
anxious waiting for the rain to stop. Displays were
built undercover in garages, basements and every
other dry place. Most were soggy bunches of crepe
paper and papier mache covered with peeling paint.
Some just fell apart. Sheets of plastic protecting
the decorations were torn away by the gusts of wind.
Following the example set by Campus Day and Row-
boat Regatta in the spring, Homecoming was a day
of showers, gray skies and chilly winds. But it was a
capacity crowd at Memorial stadium which greeted
Queen Nelda Norton and her attendants, Maria Web-

lectures, a variety show starring University talent
and fashion shows featuring KSU coed styles. Many

to Memorial stadium where they took part in the
flag-raising. Then they were reviewed by President
Bowman. At halftime the University marching band
saluted Scabbard and Blade, Pershing Rifles and
the other military organizations. Topping the day's
festivities was the upset over Louisville. The first

the fraternity division. "Death in the Afternoon"
captured second place for Theta Chi. The Phi Delts
were third. A trip through the Arctic to the
Antarctic "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" gave
Lowry hall the first place trophy for independent
women. Terrace hall discovered a new way to
start cars with its second place "It Started with a
Kiss." The "Student Prince" of Prentice hall was
third. Tom Troyer's orchestra played during in-
termission. The Merrymen of Kent, a vocal group
from the men's dormitories, sang several numbers
before the second round of skits started. An old-

depicted the struggle of a Greisha girl in deciding
whether to marry or to stay at the tea house. It won
the second place trophy. The girls of Alpha Chi
Omega changed into luscious "Wild Strawberries"
to present their third place skit. Stopher hall turned
the "Mark of Zorro" into an old-time movie to win
the first place trophy in the independent men's divi-
sion. The son of "Dangerous Dan McGrew" turned
out not to be "Yesterday's Enemy" in Newman club's

With the celebration of the University's Semicen-
tennial, the Administration faced many difficult but
not impossible tasks. The two main problems ap-
pearing before administrators this year were the
tremendous enrollment increase, an all-time high,
and the race to expand quickly enough to meet the
immediate and future needs in housing and class-
room buildings. More than 2,400 applications from
entering freshmen were processed this year. This,
plus the large upperclassmen and extension school
enrollments, pushed the student total above 10,000
for the first time. The campus continued to push
eastward with the construction of a $3y2 million
speech and hearing center. Work is beginning on a
$21/2 million men's housing unit; this will complete
the men's quadrangle. In the not too distant future,
needed classroom buildings will be erected on the
old baseball diamond.

Arts and Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences strives to give the
student a liberal and fundamental background in
the humanities, arts and sciences. Emphasis is placed
upon breadth of education rather than upon special-
ization. The College also offers many courses de-
signed to meet the needs of other colleges in the
University. Formerly the College of Liberal Arts,
it was renamed in the fall quarter of 1956. Cur-
ricula in preparation for advanced studies in
graduate or professional schools are also available.
Students in the College may major in more
than twenty fields. Presently, the College offers
two degrees; bachelor of arts and bachelor of
science. During the Semicentennial observance,

vocation in November. "A New Canadian Adven-
ture in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Studies"
was the topic of the speaker. Dr. Albert W. Trueman.
At the January convocation Dr. J. Herbert Taylor
spoke concerning, "What We Should Know About
Chromosomes in the Atomic Age." Dean Eric N.
Rackham is currentlv serving as Dean of the College.
A rapidly developing function of the College of Edu-
cation is the promotion of the individual growth of
the teachers and the public usefulness of the schools
in Northeastern Ohio. This is done through consul-
tative sessions, field services and in-service pro-
grams. But the primary function of the College is
the preparation of qualified teachers, supervisors,
administrators and other specialized school per-
sonnel. To prepare qualified educators the College
offers a diversified but coherent program consisting
of training in general education, specialized educa-
tion and professional preparation. These three seg-
ments are separated, yet are integrated in several
ways so that the graduate has achieved compre-
hensive preparation for teaching. All students en-
rolled in the College of Education are subject to a
Quality Standards program. This is intended for
the development and the maintaining of certain qual-
ities necessary for future teachers. The graduate re-
ceives one of five certificates, depending on his field
of study in education. The Dean of the College is
Dr. Clayton M. Schindler.
Dr. Clayton M. Schindler was appointed as Dean of
the College of Education in 1959. He received his
Ph.D. from Ohio State university in 1950.

Fine, Professional Arts
Created by the Board of Trustees on April 14, 1959,
the establishment of the College of Fine and Pro-
fessional Arts reflects the growth of Kent State
University in its first 50 years. Consideration of the
possibility of developing a new college at Kent be-
gan five years ago. The College of Arts and Sciences,
established in 1929, was comprised of 21 departments
or schools. This unwieldly size made the division
of that College necessary. The new College includes
the departments of architecture, home economics
and industrial arts and the schools of art, journalism,
music and speech. Degrees granted by the youngest
College are: the bachelor of arts, bachelor of science,
bachelor of fine arts and bachelor of architecture.
These degrees distinguish disciplines or different
patterns of concentration of study. The first class to
receive degrees is the Semicentennial class. The
College of Fine and Professional Arts has 72 faculty
members. Nearly 800 students are majoring in fields
in the College's program. The Dean is Dr. John J.
Kamerick, formerly the Assistant Dean of the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences.
Department heads, l.-r.
Prof. William Taylor, Dr.

The College of Business Administration, under the
direction of Dean Stanley C. Vance, provides pro-
fessional training in various fields of business and
commerce. The College, which was organized in
1936, has a total of 17 major fields of study. Among
the courses offered to the business student are mar-
keting, business management, industrial relations
and foreign trade. In addition to the regular four-
year curricula the College also offers a two-year pro-
gram in office administration which leads to a pro-
ficiency certificate. All of the work taken in this
curriculum is applicable toward a degree upon the
completion of an additional two years work. Total
enrollment during the fall quarter of 1959 was 1578.
Of this total 1364 were men, and 214 were women
students. There are 31 faculty members in the Busi-
ness College. At the College's Semicentennial con-
vocation in March, Dr. Jean Paul Mather, president
of the University of Massachusetts, spoke on "Busi-
ness Administration and the Liberal Things." Var-
ious outstanding graduates of the College were hon-
ored at the convocation.
Dean of the College of Business Administration is Dr.
Stanley C. Vance. He is also head of the department of
industrial administration and production.
Advanced study leading to a master of arts, a master
of business administration or a master of education
is provided by the Graduate School. Through grad-
uate work the student gains a more fundamental
understanding and a more thorough mastery of
his major field and advances his preparations for
technical or professorial pursuits. To receive
his master's degree, a student must possess a
broad knowledge of the literature of his field of
concentration, exhibit the power of independent
thinking, be capable of sustained study and possess
a reasonable ability to do research. Kent State has
been authorized to grant a master of arts degree
since 1935. The degrees of master of education and
of master of business administration have been of-
fered for the past ten years. A doctorate program
has been approved. Dr. Raymond M. Clark is Dean
of the Graduate School. Its policy is made by the
Graduate Council whose members are representa-
tives selected from the graduate faculty and admin-
istration. The President of the University is chair-
man of the Council.
The office of Dean Raymond M. Clark of the Graduate
School is located on the balcony over the Atrium. Dean
Clark received his Ph.D. from Western Reserve in 1933.

The senior class of 1960 could well have many names.
It could be called the "Semicentennial class," as it
graduates during Kent State University's 50th year.
It might be named the "Leaf Rake class," because
the class initiated the annual freshman leaf rake
when its members were freshmen in 1956. In that
year, roughly 2000 freshmen came to Kent State;
however, through the process of evolution, or per-
haps elimination, the class of 1960 will graduate 900
to 950 seniors. Bernie Scheidler is the senior class
president, and Roland Patzer is the advisor. Meet-
ings were held in the Union the second Thursday
of each month. At one such meeting, the class
decided on selling KSU license brackets as the class
project. At another meeting members discussed
the building of a shelter house behind Memorial
gym or giving scholarships as their class gift. Last
year the class sponsored the "J-Prom" and as sopho-
mores they contributed $600 towards the carillon
bells. Highlighting the class's last year at Kent will
be a senior buffet dinner and dance in the Kent area.

Student Council, recognized as the governing body
of KSU, is the legislative body of the Student
Government association. All students possessing a
2. accumulative average and a 2. previous quarter
are eligible to take part in this organization. Repre-
sentatives are elected from the classes, dormitories,
Panhellenic council, Inter-Fraternity council, Men's
Student association and Associated Women Stu-
dents — 38 in all. Before being seated permanently,
they must pass a comprehensive examination on
parliamentary procedure and student government.
The Council makes recommendations to the admin-
istration on matters of student affairs, makes or
approves appointments of students to all student
or student-faculty committees or positions, super-
vises elections and organizes the freshman class.
New committees are working on a finals week and
the simplification of the registration procedure.
All organizations which wish to be recognized by
the University must apply to this body. It also
selects the finalists for Duke of Kent, Miss Kent
State, the outstanding junior man and woman
and the NTFC director. Prof. Paul Kitchin of the
political science department is the advisor.
Arnie Roth pours a cup of coffee for fellow Council mem-
bers Jeana Savu and Nancy Kerr while they wait for one

The Social committee is a subdivision of Student
Council, but acts independently. Seven students
and six faculty members are on the committee. To
be eligible a student must have a 2. accumulative
average and a 2. the previous quarter. Three are
elected at large; and the remaining four are ap-
pointed by Inter-Fraternity council, Men's Student
association, Associated Women Students and Stu-
dent Council. President Bowman appoints four of
the faculty members; the Dean of Woinen and the
Dean of Men are standing members. Dean Patzer is
the advisor. Social committee establishes and
enforces the social code for on and off campus
events. It holds trials and determines penalties
for violations of the code. The social calendar,
which is distributed at fall registration is planned
and published by the committee. Planning the ac-
tivities for Homecoming, Top Hop and Campus Day
is its responsibility. Choosing a queen, selecting
a band and presenting trophies are its more
obvious jobs. Its hardest job is satisfying all the
many interests of the KSU student.

The Associated Women Students is the only univer-
sal women's organization on campus. It is the
governing body of Kent coeds. Every woman student
entering Kent State University automatically be-
comes a member of AWS. The AWS executive board
is composed of representatives from the classes,
women's dormitories and various organizations.
Every year the organization publishes the Kent
Coed which contains the rules and regulations to
be followed by women students. With the Men's
Student association, AWS co-sponsors Pork Barrel.
Its other activities include the Senior Women's
banquet, the Presidents' banquet. New Faculty tea,
Activities Fair, Mom-Me week-end and all-Univer-
sity mixers. The group also holds parties for off-
campus women each quarter. This spring the Kent
chapter will be hostess for the Region IV Con-
vention of the Intercollegiate Associated Women
Students. Approximately 200 women leaders from
colleges in 14 Northeastern states will meet here
for a round of business meetings, discussion groups
and speeches by prominent people.
Every male student at KSU automatically becomes
a member of the Men's Student association, MSA
gives the men students an organization through
which their views may be expressed. A service or-
ganization, it receives an allocation from student
fees to support its projects. The association spon-
sors the Presidents' banquet, MSA Derby, Senior
Mens' banquet, Pork Barrel, Activities Fair and
other University events. A beard growing contest
during spring quarter coincided with the Sem-
icentennial celebration. MSA presents the MSA Sen-
ior Service award which is given to the most out-
standing graduating senior. This is the second
highest award at KSU. The Golden Book, a hand-
book for freshman men, is published by MSA. It
deals with University tradition, hints on manners
and other information geared to helping college
freshmen adjust to campus life. The officers and
four representatives from each class are chosen each
year in a general election. To be nominated for
class representative or officer, a man must have a
2.25 accumulative average and 2. previous quarter.

Dinks . . . the annual leaf rake . . . various class
mixers — these all went to make the first year a
never-to-be-forgotten experience. Led by their ad-
visor, Dr. Lester G. Brailey, Director of Orientation,
the freshman class struggled through New Student
Week activities. They took a battery of tests, met
President Bowman, learned the Alma Mater, travel-
ed to the Health center for their TB tests, took speech
and hearing tests and still had enough energy to
attend mixers. Class spirit and enthusiasm ran
high for the leaf rake and freshman football game.
In November the freshmen presented their first
dramatic attempt, "Desire Under the Elms." The
fraternities and sororities also took their number
from the class of 1963. During winter quarter har-
ried frosh scurried to rush their favorite fraternity
or sorority. The freshmen decorated the Library
and Prentice gate for the traditional campus Christ-
mas ceremony. The '63 class had the distinction of
being the largest freshman class in KSU's history,
but its number soon decreased after the fall quarter's
work had taken its toll.
Freshman leaf rakers work to clean up the front campus
in their first class activity this fall. The Friday afternoon
gathering ended with the serving of coffee and doughnuts.
Tickets to a mixer were also given the workers.
Sophomore class meetings are held in the Union.
The class sponsored a mixer during fall quarter,
and plans were made for a Samicentennial project.
Their class advisor is Gerald Hayes.
A highlight of the sophomore class activities was
the class party, at which women students attending
were given 2 a. m. late pers. Last year, the class drew
up a constitution which was approved by Student
Council. It was the first class to do so. The con-
stitution provides for seven standing committees.
This year's freshman class plans to adopt a similar
constitution. The big project of the class was work-
ing on the improvement of class meeting atten-
dance. This was very successful, and a large number
of sophomores attended the meetings. They were
held on the second Tuesday of every month in
the Union. Tom Norman, who was last year's
freshman class president, heads the sophomore
group. The class sponsored mixers and several
sophomore nights, which were designed to boost
school spirit by encouraging the entire class to
support athletics. A committee was formed by the
class to make special plans for class participation
in the Semicentennial celebration. Gerald Hayes,
director of alumni record affairs is advisor. He was
also advisor to the class last year.
Officers, l.-r.. Sue Galehouse, Sec; Joe Palacio Jr., V.
Pres.; Barb Kern, Treas.; Tom Norman. Pres. They
guide the class of 1962 through its second year.
Toasting the futura oi the class of 1961 in an informal
meeting in the Hub are, l.-r., George Kuebler, Walt
Mika, Myrna Baker and Ruth Rhydderch.
"Over the Hump," could well have been the motto
of the junior class as its members began the last
half of their college careers. Their freshman year
was marked by a raid; their sophomore year Campus
Day was without floats; their junior year has been
calm, but it could be the calm before the storm. A
new tradition was started this year by the class of
1961. Underprivileged children from the Kent area
were treated to a Christmas party in the Sub-Hub.
Gifts were given to the children. The ghosts and
goblins prowled the campus when the class spon-
sored the Halloween Hop, an all-University mixer.
The faculty and administration were pleasantly sur-
prised when they received Christmas cards and
birthday congratulations from the class. Their most
important project of the year, in the eyes of the
seniors, was the J-Prom. This annual dance honors
the graduating class. Committees were formed to
select a class gift and to select a project for the
Semicentennial celebration. Advising the juniors as
they begin their last year is Mark Anthony of the
Dean of Men's staff.
Junior Class officers gathered about the table are. l.-r..

Not only do the music
and speech groups
lend entertainment to
the lives of the
student, but they also
furnish an outlet

Kent State band
Almost every department of the University is re-
presented in the Kent State University band. Of
the 100 members, less than half are majoring in
music. Beginning with the Freshman rally in Sep-
tember the band plays for many campus events
throughout the year. Last fall old members wrote
letters to incoming freshmen encouraging them to
become band members. The response was so great
that two concert bands had to be formed. The old
blue and gold uniforms were replaced by a new
semi-cadet style uniform. They become a formal
blue for concerts when the gold tunic which covers
the waist length jacket is removed. To commemorate
the Semicentennial the band produced the record
album, "Kent's Golden Year."

Orchestra, Oratorio give Semicentennial concerts
Twenty years ago a small group of music-minded
citizens formed the Kent Civic orchestra. As Uni-
versity students and faculty members joined its
ranks, the group became the Kent State Civic or-
chestra. Today the University orchestra is open
to all students and players from the community.
It annually provides the accompaniment to Handel's
"Messiah" and such larger works as Mozart's "Re-
quiem," Bach's "Christmas Oratoria" and Vaughn
Williams "Dona Nobis Pacem." The highlights of
its year are the presentation of the annual Christmas
and May Day concerts. The Oratorio guild, directed
by Prof. Robert H. Foulkes, emphasizes training in
the study of cantatas, anthems and oratorios. Com-
posed of members of the University choruses, fac-
ulty and residents of Kent, it presents at least one
concert each quarter. This year it presented "St.
John's Passion." To complement its programs, solo-
ists frequently appear with the guild. Oratorical
guild is offered as a credit course for students. The
guild joined other campus musical organizations to
record "Kent's Golden Year."
The Oratorio guild perform's Handel's
"Messiah" as a traditional Christmas pro-
gram. Prof. Robert Foulkes was soloist.

Professor E. Turner Stump. A chapter was estab-
hshed at Kent in 1930. Membership is awarded on
the basis of accomplishment in the theatre; student
is admitted when he obtains a certain number of
points. The group sponsors public play readings.
The field of dramatic arts is represented by the Uni-
versity Theatre. The organization exists as a labora-
tory for the training students in theatre arts; it pro-
vides entertainment for the campus and it is an ex-
tension of the classroom to acquaint students with
the dramatic literature of the world. Prof. G. Harry
Wright is the director.

station, has been on the air since 1950. The station's
programs are designed to provide a variety of actual
broadcasting experience for students and to serve
listeners in the Kent area, both on and off the
campus. It is the "Community Voice of Kent State
University." The station is a member of the National
Association of Educational Broadcasters and broad-
casts programs provided by the NAEB. A library of
more than 500 albums provides a wide choice of
classical music. Play-by-play coverage of Univer-
sity football, basketball and baseball games features
student announcers. Student organizations and de-
partments within the University participate in
special programs. The schedule is given an inter-
national touch with programs from the French
broadcasting system, the British broadcasting com-
pany and Radio Netherland. A special wiring system
pipes these programs into the dormitories. Donald
Deemer is student program director, Prof. John
Weiser is faculty supervisor and Prof. Walton Clarke

Daily Kent Stater
Named "Ohio's Top Collegiate Daily" at last year's
Ohio College Newspaper association convention, the
Daily Kent Stater furnishes Kent State students
with news of the campus. The Stater is published
four days each week. Although it serves as a lab for
journalism students, the Stater is staffed by students
from every college in the University. The motto of
the Stater, "Integrity Without Compromise," serves
as a daily reminder to the staffers that "there is a
difference between journalism and responsible
journalism." On the wall is painted the motto,
"Nothing Short of Right is Right." This was sug-
gested by Prof. William Taylor, chairman of the
school of journalism. An old tradition with the
newspaper is the hanging of pictures of past editors
and business managers. At present 106 pictures
adorn the walls of the office. Another tradition is
the continual flow of coffee from the "Hub." A new
innovation last fall was the introduction of a Fresh-
man issue of the Stater. Freshmen in the school of
journalism took over the entire operation.

In the dark and sinister shadows of the basement of
Kent hall dwells a strange type of student called a
Chestnut Burr staff member. Mingled with the
strange noises of steam pipes and machinery is the
clattering of typewriters and the sound of gurgling
water from the darkroom. If a staffer does emerge
into the outside world, his purpose is usually to run
to the Hub for coffee. As the days narrow before
an approaching deadline, hours in the office grow
longer, and study time fades into oblivion. In spite
of the tension, now and then laughter drifts down
the damp corridors. And in the spring, when it's all
over, finally and somehow on time, the staff feels
satisfaction and pride in the presentation of the 1960
Semicentennial Chestnut Burr.

tising and counted pennies in addition to buying
office supplies. Advisor to both the business and
editorial staff is Edward Cliney of the school of
journalism. He is a 1953 graduate of Kent State and
received a master of science degree in journalism
from Northwestern university. Mr. Cliney has first-
hand knowledge of the operations of the Chestnut
Burr as he edited the 1952 yearbook. He is also the
mainstay of the Burr pitching staff in the annual
Burr-Stater softball game held during spring quar-
ter. Advising the Daily Kent Stater is William Fish-
er. He was graduated from Franklin college with an
AB degree and received his MSJ from Northwestern
university. He is serving his fifth year as Stater ad-
visor. He is an associate professor in the school of

Arnold Air society
Named for the late Air Force General Hap Arnold,
who pioneered the establishment of a separate air
force during the late '40's, the society is an honorary
ROTC organization for all second quarter or above
Air Force cadets. Membership in Arnold Air so-
ciety is designed to further cadet interests in the
community, ROTC activities, the Air Force and
air power. To fully participate in the society, cadets
must maintain a 2.25 accumulative average and a
2.5 in all ROTC military courses at Kent State. A
field trip to inspect the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration facilities at Cleveland Hop-
kins airport and a visitation program in surrounding
county high schools highlighted the society's ac-
tivities this year. The Military Ball was co-sponsored
by the society. At present there are 21 active mem-
bers in the society. Membership is designated by the
blue and gold braids and service ribbons worn on
the uniforms. Commanding the local chapter is
Terry McCorry. Other staff officer positions are
executive commander, administrative officer, adju-
tant and operations officer. Capt. Maurice Smith is
the Kent chapter advisor.

Air Force ROTC
The KSU chapter of Air Force Reserve Officers
Training corps is the 630th detachment. All boys
are eligible for basic AFROTC. To qualify for ad-
vanced ROTC, a cadet must pass an eight-hour Air
Force Qualifications test and must undergo a strict
physical. Established on the Kent State campus
in 1951, the local chapter sponsors about four field
trips a year to various Air Force bases for the cadets.
During the vi^inter these trips are to a southern base,
usually in Florida. This gives the cadets a change
of scenery and helps to increase their knowledge
about various bases throughout the country. The
AFROTC program is designed to prepare young men
for positions of command and to develop in them
the knowledge and characteristics of an officer.
Advisor for the local chapter is Lt, Col. Louis Stokes.
The national professional and social honorary for
Air Force cadets is the Arnold Air society. It is
open to all AFROTC members, including freshmen.
Members must attain a 2.25 accumulative average
and 2.5 in military science courses. Upon graduation
the men may be commissioned second lieutenents.

Composed of outstanding ROTC members, Pershing
Rifles drills for such events as parades, football
games and for all occasions when the University
needs a color guard. The Kent unit has won numer-
ous honors at drill meets throughout the country.
Though it is mainly a drill organization, it was
founded by General John J. Pershing to uphold the
highest ideals of military organization. The basic
purpose of the honorary is to provide a background
of proficiency in leadership and drill. The organ-
ization is able to give its men a sample of actual
warfare by utilizing tactical information and field
programs. Founded at the University of Nebraska in
1894 as a national honor society the Pershing Rifles
has grown to be the largest military fraternity
in the country. The KSU chapter of Pershing
Rifles is Company K, first regiment. Organized
October 29, 1949, the local group is advised by
Lt. Col. Robert C. Dalrymple and M. Sgt. Charles
W. Crusa. The insignia is a blue and white braid
worn over the left shoulder. The Kent State unit

Scabbard and Blade
Scabbard and Blade, national military honor so-
ciety, is the only all-service Reserve Officers
Training Corps honorary. It was founded at the
University of Wisconsin. The local chapter is
Company M8. The purpose of Scabbard and Blade
is primarily to raise the standard of military educa-
tion in American colleges and universities; to unite
in closer relationship their military departments;
to encourage and foster the essential qualities of
good and efficient officers and to promote friend-
ship and good fellowship among cadet officers.
The local chapter was founded in 1949. It co-spon-
sors the annual Military Ball with the Arnold Air
society at Meyers Lake in Canton. It also sponsors an
Activation Ball during fall quarter. In the spring
it holds orientation classes for the entire junior
class of Army ROTC who will be going to summer
camp. Company M8 invites speakers to talk to
members and uses films to broaden the cadets'
knowledge and understanding of military science.
It also assists the military department in many ways.
Advisor for Company M8 is Lt. Col. G. Neil Wilcox.

room of the United Christian Fellowship house. The
group holds suppers in the Congregational church.
Eight Protestant denominations are represented
in United Christian fellowship. It is one of five
such religious groups in the United States. The
denominations are: Baptist, Congregational, Di-
sciples of Christ, Episcopal, Evangelical and Re-
formed, Evangelical United Brethren, Presbyterian
and Universalist. But any student, regardless of
religious affiliation, may join the group. UCF hopes
to keep the Christian gospel a living reality for Kent
State University students. It provides Christian
fellowship, counseling and worship for all members.
Retreats are held each spring and fall. Other activ-
ities are Sunday evening meetings, Wednesday'
coffee-hours, Bible studies and impromptu discus-
sions. There is a semi-formal dance winter quarter.
To supplement the foreign student aid fund, the
group sells sandwiches and ice cream in dormitories
and some sorority and fraternity houses. The group,
part of the United Student Christian council, main-
tains a UCF house where members may go at any
time to participate in lively discussions or just to
relax. There is also a chapel at the House.

Sigma Theta Epsilon
"We are workers together with God through the
church" is the motto of Sigma Theta Epsilon, na-
tional Methodist men's fraternity. This philosophy
is shown through the fraternity's service to the
church, school and community. Members serve as
ushers during Sunday worship services at the Kent
Methodist church. Each Easter Sigma Theta Epsilon
and Kappa Phi, the national service sorority for
Methodist women, co-sponsor a "Meal In the Upper
Room." Only a ritual led by The Rev. Joe Brown
Love, director of the Wesley foundation, breaks the
silent service. In addition to service projects the
group has an active social schedule. The high point
of this is the annual Sweetheart formal with Kappa
Phi. During the spring quarter a banquet is held
to celebrate Founder's Day. The fraternity partici-
pates in the independent men's division of intra-
murals and Songfest. Installed as the Sigma chapter
at Kent in 1949, Sigma Theta Epsilon stresses coop-
eration with other religious organizations. Member-
ship is open to all Protestant men. Rev. Love is the
advisor to the fraternity.

Any Methodist woman on campus may pledge Kappa
Phi either fall or winter quarter. The pledge
period is twelve weeks. Installed in 1948 at Kent
State, the Alpha Lambda chapter of Kappa Phi has
as its motto "Others." In order to fulfill this
motto the members of this service club for Metho-
dist women undertake such projects as parties for
children in hospitals and boxes of food and cloth-
ing for needy families at Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas time. The group plans social functions with the
Methodist men's fraternity; the highlight of these
is the Sweetheart formal held winter quarter.
Kappa Phi's participate in Campus Day songfest.
At bi-monthly meetings the girls have parties for
prospective pledges, hear speakers, learn some
of the many Kappa Phi songs and have devotional
programs. One of the traditions of the group is
the Christmas Eve letters. At this time women
all over the United States write a letter to one
of their sisters expressing the thoughts that this
season of the year brings to their minds. Head-
quarters for the organization is Wesley house.

Students gather at the Wesley house on Friday night to
hear the first in a series of discussions on love and mar-
riage conducted by the Rev. and Mrs. Joe Brown Love.
Directed by the Rev. and Mrs. Joe Brown Love,
this religious group works together to develop
social, educational and spiritual growth of the
Kent State student. It sponsors Sunday School
discussions, coffee hours, suppers and a special
coffee hour for commuters. One of the outstand-
ing segments of Wesley is their dance and drama
guild. This talented group of students presents
religious drama in the form of plays, readings
and modern dance. They perform throughout Ohio
and are touring the South and Florida during
spring vacation. Recently the guild attended the
Methodist Workers' conference in Cincinnati. The
Foundation also sponsors a retreat every Saturday
evening at the Wesley house; these social gather-
ings have various themes. Sunday is the big day
for the group. An early coffee hour is followed
by Sunday School. Evening activities include a
supper and business and religious meetings with
speakers on world affairs. Although it is Methodist
sponsored, membership in the Wesley foundation
is open to students of all denominations.
The Eastern Orthodox fellowship is a representa-
tive organization of approximately 150 Orthodox
students on the Kent State campus. The Fellow-
ship strives to satisfy the spiritual needs of its
'members by sponsoring periodical religious ser-
vices on campus with Orthodox priests of neigh-
boring communities officiating. Members of EOF
try to further and create a better understanding
of Orthodoxy and to promote religious, educational,
cultural and social activities on campus. Special
hours are also kept for student counseling by the
organization's spiritual advisor, the Very Rev. Peter
Rozdelsky. The EOF endeavors to maintain good
student relations by offering social events for all its
members. Fireside parties are familiar to all EOF
members. A spring picnic is also held. One of the
highlights of the organization's activities is the an-
nual presentation of Christmas gifts to the members
of the Brotherhood of Saint John, House of Mercy,
Old Age Home, in Hiram Rapids, Ohio. The local
chapter is a member of the EOF of the state of Ohio.

group hear lecturers, discuss current events and
quiz one another on religious and general know-
ledge. The local Hillel and counselorships from
Youngstown university. Western Reserve and other
area universities have quarterly dances. Each quar-
ter the KSU and the Akron university groups hold a
joint dance at the Akron Jewish center. These plus
many informal get-togethers, movies and parties

bers. Special programs are planned to emphasize
the religious holidays and celebrations. Established

B'rith counselorship is one of the larger religious
organizations on campus. Every Jewish student may
become a member of Hillel. Dr. Martin Baron of

Membership in Blue Key is one of the highest honoi's
a man can receive at Kent State. "Serving I Live"
is the group's motto. The members try to uphold
the high standards of their school and the principles
of their country. Membership in this national service
fraternity requires that the student have junior or
senior standing at the University and a point
average well above the all-men's average. He must
also possess leadership qualities, a record of ser-
vice to the University and must participate in campus
activities. Blue Key members sponsor the annual
publication of the "Blue Key," a campus-wide stu-
dent directory which contains the names, addresses
and telephone numbers of all KSU students, faculty
members and administrators. Blue Key also co-
sponsors Penny Carnival with Cardinal Key, wom-
en's national service honorary. Profits from this
spring-quarter activity are used to provide three an-
ual scholarships and to finance the Penny Stater
fund, which sends Daily Kent Staters to ex-students
in the armed forces.

In spite of its small membership. Laurels is one of
the most active groups on campus. Its purpose is service.
The greatest honor that a senior woman at Kent
State can receive is membership in Laurels, the
senior women's honorary. Requirements for mem-
bership are leadership, scholarship, character and
service. The primary purpose of the group is to
promote a feeling of loyalty to Kent State. Other
purposes are to advance a spirit of service and
fellowship among University women, to maintain
high scholarship, to encourage leadership and to
develop character. The women sponsor the annual
Leadership conference, act as hostesses at the
Scholarship tea, work with foreign students and
form an honor guard at senior commencement. Ad-
visors are Dean Margaret Forsythe, Mrs. Roger
Shaw and Mrs. Charles Keith. The members hold
occasional dinners together as well as relaxed busi-
ness meetings at advisors' homes. The group was
founded at Kent State in 1955 and became known
as Laurels in 1956. The women follow no stated
motto, believing instead that "In place of words
we seek thoughts and actions always." New mem-
bers are tapped early in the morning Honors Day.
They are awakened at their dormitories or sorority
houses and then treated to an early breakfast.

The only organization on campus designed speci-
fically for varsity athletes is Varsity K. This club
for lettermen was founded at Kent in 1927. The
objectives of the group are to unite all "K" men
of the campus and to promote in every proper and
constructive way student participation in physical
education, recreation and athletics. The group also
strives to maintain ties between Varsity K alumni
and the University through a periodical called the
"Varsity K Newsletter." Chief among the group's
yearly activities is the annual Varsity K hop held
during spring quarter. The dance is highlighted
by the selection of a queen and her court. The Friday
before the dance is especially designated "K" Day.
A newly-initiated activity is an annual visit to the
Children's hospital in Akron. Members take gifts
and good humor to the bedsides of the children
and spend the whole day visiting with them. In
keeping with their charitable program, the
members of Varsity K took a group of orphans
to one of the Kent State home football games.
Industrial Arts club
Drawn together by a common interest in design-
ing, building and planning, the members of the
Industrial Arts club are majors and minors in that
field. Founded in 1912, the purposes of the club
are both professional and social. During the year
the members invite prominent men from industry
as speakers, hold panel discussions and serve as
hosts for the winter meeting of the Northeast Ohio
Industrial Arts association. Further knowledge of
industrial arts is gained through the organization's
meetings. Kent delegates also attend a state-wide
convention. Members work on art exhibits, house
designing and woodworking. These projects give
the students an opportunity to develop creativity and
practical work under the critical guidance of instruc-
tors who are in the field. Members of the club also
enjoy picnics, a traditional dance in the spring and a
fall pancake supper for the freshmen. Keeping up
a good record of campus activities and competition,
members of the club took first place in the row-
ing contest during last spring's Rowboat Regatta.

press themselves by singing and to represent KSU.
Membership is entirely voluntary. Sponsored by all

Building a panographic map of the campus was one
of the projects of the Student AIA this year. Mem-
bers built the 16 ft. by 12 ft. display under the
direction of Prof. Joseph Morbito. The map was
placed in the Library lounge as part of the Semi-
centennial commemoration. Bob Ahrens presided
over the Semicentennial activities of the group.
The student association, established in 1955 by the
Eastern Ohio chapter of AIA, was first known
as the Kent Architectural society. The members
are bound together by their interest in the pro-
fession. The organization strives to further the
understanding and acquaintance between students
and professional men. It also works to advance the
general public's understanding of architecture. Mem-
bership in the student chapter is the first step in
obtaining membership in the national. Many Kent
graduates are presently junior or associate members.
The group entertains noted speakers, takes field trips
and holds dinner meetings. All members of the
society are working toward a bachelor of architec-
ture degree which is a five year program.

Kappa Delta Pi
Kappa Delta Pi is a national honorary for outstand-
ing students in education. Requirements for mem-
bership are a scholastic average more than a 3. and
a sincere interest and proficiency in the educational
field. Purposes of the fraternity are to promote high
scholastic standing and to give recognition to those
who attain this. The honorary encourages high
intellectual and personal standards. One of its
aims is to recognize outstanding contributions to
the field. Established in 1935, the organization
is one of the oldest honoraries at Kent. The members

Organized last May, the KSU Gymnastic club works
to educate and develop its members to be strong
and healthy individuals. Each member learns skills
and teaches them to others whenever possible. The
club hopes to stimulate an interest in gymnastic
activity among Kent State students. A list of safety
rules and regulations are given to all members and
standards of dress are carefully observed. A pre-
scribed program is followed at each training session.
Activities included in the program, for both men and
women, are calisthenics, tumbling, parallel bars,
rings and side horse. Club teachers have all been
trained and many experts are brought in to demon-
strate gymnastics. The club hosted the National
AAU Gymnastic Championship for Women, wHich
was also the Pan-American Team trials, last spring.
Members take part in AAU Gymnastic meets in
Cleveland and also in AAU Invitational meets. The
club travels to high schools in the area to give exhibi-
tions. They also gave an exhibition for KSU students
this spring. On the social side, the club holds dances.

The Teak Travelers is a group of students seeking
to be recognized by Interfraternity council as Tau
Beta Rho colony of Tau Kappa Epsilon. The group's
final ambition is to become a chapter of TKE, the
largest national social fraternity in the country.
Requirements for membership closely parallel those
of most of the Kent State fraternities, a 2.0 accumu-
lative average and a 2.0 previous quarter grade.
Newton Morton, associate professor of transporta-
tion, is the advisor of the group. The regular business
meetings are held weekly. The Travelers have plans
to participate in numerous campus activities, such as
intramurals, in the future. TKE members who have
transferred to Kent State from chapters at other uni-
versities began the organization of the local chapter
in fall quarter. In January, delegates from KSU at-
tended a national Founder's Day banquet for all
chapters. At present, the Teak Travelers' plans call
for increased emphasis on their efforts to become a
recognized chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

named Alpha Delta chapter. The honorary is open
only to men majoring or minor ing in physical educa-
tion. Requirements for membership are sophomore
standing, a 2.5 accumulative point average and a
high moral character. Phi Epsilon Kappa has five
recognized objectives. One is to inculcate the prin-
ciples of peace, friendship and brotherly love. Others
are to promote and enhance the happiness of its mem-
bers; to elevate the standards, ideals and ethics of
those engaged in the field of health and physical
education; to support the active chapters and to
perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization and pro-
vide for its government. The group, which has 20
student members, gives aid to the physical education
department clinics and other activities whenever pos-
sible. Their meetings are always highlighted by a
noted speaker from the field of health or physical
education. Advisors for the organization are Prof.
Frank E. Ballenger and Prof. Lawrence A. Golding.

can receive is membership in Cardinal Key, the na-
tional women's honor sorority. Applicants petition
for membership and are chosen on the basis of their
grades, activities and character. New members are
pledged twice a year. Pledges find it hard to hide
their big red keys. There is a pledge period of two
weeks before activation. Service to the University
is Cardinal Key's purpose. The women usher at
special school functions, co-sponsor a mixer and
Penny Carnival with Blue Key and serve as the
Campus Day Queen's court. During Senior week the
Cardinal Key Womanhood award is presented to
the outstanding senior woman. Three tuition-free
scholarships were presented to deserving women
during the Semicentennial year. National conven-
tions are held every two years, and the members who
have graduated may join active alumnae groups. Lo-
cally, business meetings are held twice each month.
Advising the women in their many service projects is
Dr. Dorcas A.nderson, associate professor of biology.

SEA works for better education of children
Members of the Student Education association are
interested in all phases of education from early
childhood through elementary to secondary and the
special types. Their main concern, however, is a
better education for the children of tomorrow. By
attending various professional conventions and
workshops, the members of SEA learn about the his-
tory, ethics and the current program of the teaching
profession. One of the most important functions of
the group is the high school day held each quarter.
Prospective KSU students are guided around campus
and their questions about college are answered. At
Christmas time SEA members entertain the under-
privileged children in the Kent area with a party.
This group, one of the largest on campus, wants to
develop among young people preparing to become
teachers an organization which will become an in-
tegral part of the state and national education asso-
ciations. Dr. A. M. Crist is advisor.

State boasts more than 100 members. An interna-
tional organization, it is open to any student major-
ing in elementary education, special education or
early childhood education. The group lists as its
only requirement a sincere interest in the welfare
of young children. Yearly programs include coffee
hours, speakers, workshops and field trips to ob-
serve and to meet children and their teachers. In
conjunction with the Semicentennial program, the
group heard a special guest speak on the growth of
elementary education at the University during the
last 50 years. The advisor for this organization is
Prof. G. A. Craig.

Alpha Phi Omega
Alpha Phi Omega and the word service are used
synonymously on the KSU campus. This group of
men, dedicated to service to the University, com-
munity, and country, sponsors many projects. The
annual Quartet contest, care of the Victory bell and
an all-University mixer during fall quarter are
three of the organization's services. Aiding local
Boy Scout organizations, sending many Care pack-
ages and sponsoring an all-University book exchange
round out their program. There are more than 300
chapters throughout the United States, and the Kent
chapter often participates in activities with other
Alpha Phi Omega chapters from colleges in our area.
The only requirements for membership are that the
applicant has had previous Boy Scout experience and
has a sincere desire to serve. As a special service to
KSU students, the members sponsored a "money
tree" in the library last year, loaning small amounts
of cash on the honor system. The motto of the fra-
ternity is "leadership, friendship, service." The or-
ganization has been established at Kent since 1941.

perience in their field. This is done by undertak-
ing various projects during the school year.
Pi Omega Pi
Selecting members from business education majors
and minors is Pi Omega Pi. New members are chosen
for this national honorary fraternity on the basis of
scholarship, citizenship and service. A picnic for
Kent's underprivileged children and an annual
Christmas dinner at the home of Advisor Dr. E. M.
Lewis are two of the year's highlights.
Phi Epsilon holds as its goals the promotion of sister-
hood and scholarship among its members and desires
to be a service to the University. It is a social sor-
ority organized two years ago which hopes to join
Pan-Hellenic. The group helps to support a needy
Kent family, presents Christmas baskets and enter-
tains at the Old Folks' home.

operation. The purpose of the group is to instill in
the engineering student the same high conception of
personal honor, integrity and obligation maintained
by the professional engineer.
Every man at Kent State is a member of AIM, and
no dues are required. The purposes are to provide
social, athletic, representative and governmental op-
portunities for the independent. The members com-
pete in the Quartet contest and Campus Day, hold

numbers about 50 members and is comprised of Kent
State students who are interested in pursuing the
field of management in business. Meetings are held
twice a month, and the members enjoy prominent
speakers and field trips to area businesses and cor-
porations. Members of this national professional
group usually join senior chapters after graduation.
The purposes of the group are to further the benefit
achieved in the classrooms, to experience the prac-
tical side of their profession, to learn from the prac-
tices of prominent established businessmen, and to
see businesses in actual operation. One of the new-
est organizations on campus, the society was organ-
ized in November, 1958, and has increased its mem-
bership 100 per cent since then. It received its na-
tional charter in February, 1959. This February the
group honored the Semicentennial with a banquet
for members, faculty, and leaders in the business
world. The advisor is Dr. J. P. Schwitter.

members must be business majors with 2.7 accumu-
lative averages and 60 quarter hours of work com-
pleted successfully. Pledging and activation are held
twice each year. Supplementing their commercial
courses, the women attend social and business meet-
ings once a month. They often ask representatives
from business firms such as the Bell Telephone com-
pany to speak. The February meeting is the high
point of the year as it commemorates the founding
of the organization. At this meeting the Phi Gamma
Nu Scholarship Key is awarded to the senior woman
with the highest scholastic average. In addition, the
national organization presents a scholarship cup to
the chapter with the highest point average. Also at
this meeting, a collection is taken to send to the
national chapter in order to buy typewriters for
veterans' hospitals. Kent State's chapter was estab-
lished in 1951 and is advised by Prof. L. H. Wheeler
of the secretarial science department.
The Student Affiliates of the American Chemical so-
ciety was organized two years ago at Kent State
when two groups of students interested in the var-
ious phases of chemistry merged into one. The only
requirement for membership is an interest in chem-
istry. Meetings, held once a month, feature lectures
given by professional specialists in the field, trips to
Northeastern Ohio chemical plants and a picnic
and Christmas party each year. In honor of the
Semicentennial celebration, the members held a
"meeting in miniature" in April, with delegates in-
vited from all of the colleges in Ohio. This conven-
tion followed the state convention held earlier in
the week at Bowling Green State university. The
local group is comprised of over 50 members. Its
main purpose is to encourage a professional interest
in the students for their particular field of speciali-
zation. The society has been a member of the na-
tional organization since 1950. Advising the group
in their work, field trips and social gatherings is Dr.
L. J. Todd of the chemistry department.
In memoriani of Dr. Will S, Thompson who served the
University for 15 years as head of the Chemistry de-
partment. Doctor Thompson died Sept. 15, 1959, just

The activities of Golden K are directed toward mak-
ing KSU a school of spirit, sportsmanship and pride.
To become a member, students go through a Work-
ing K pledge period and enter Golden K after they
have earned the necessary points. The activities of
the booster club are numerous. They arrange trans-
portation for the cheerleaders to away games, pub-
licize games and rallies and compete in the Campus
Day parade. Among the traditions which Golden K
hopes to make permanent on campus are a card sec-
tion at football games, a women's precision drill
team, the Flasherettes, and a victory flag to be flown
after each win. The organization sold dinks with the
Semicentennial seal to freshmen this year. One of
the group's latest additions is the Golden K Govern-
ing council. Students who have worked for three
quarters, are very active and have a 2.5 average are
eligible. They wear distinctive blue or white blazers.

The Home Economics club is the largest club of its
type in Ohio and the oldest organization on the Kent
State campus. The only prerequisite for member-
ship is that the applicant is a home economics major
or minor interested in broadening her knowledge of

in the fall to welcome freshman women. Members
of the club prepare the meal and arrange the decor-
ations for the annual Christmas banquet attended
by faculty, graduates and students. A program of
carols ends the evening. In the spring a brunch is
held in honor of the graduating seniors. They are
given sterling silver symbols in recognition of their
membership in the group. For the first time this
year, plaques to be engraved with the names of out-
standing freshman and senior women were placed in

Sigma Delta Chi celebrates 50tli anniversary
Sigma Delta Chi, international fraternity for men
in the field of journalism, celebrated its fiftieth an-
niversary this year. Two representatives from the
University chapter attended a four-day convention
in Indianapolis where Vice President Richard Nixon
was the guest speaker. The goal set for this year is
"freedom of information in government." The fra-
ternity is the oldest, largest and most select profes-
sional organization for men in its field. To become
a member, the applicant must work on a campus or
professional publication, maintain high standards of
scholarship and desire a career in the field of jour-
nalism. The purpose of the organization is to inspire
interest in the journalistic field and to assist high
schools in their publications whenever needed. Sigma
Delta Chi sponsors and operates Rowboat Regatta
in the spring and organizes the mock news event for
the High School Press clinic. The men are also hosts
for the annual publications banquet at which time
awards are presented to outstanding students in
journalism. When graduated, members can affiliate
with alumni chapters of the fraternity. Speakers
from the Buckeye chapter are frequent guests at
dinners held throughout the year. "Quill" is the
national magazine of the organization. The local
chapter was established in 1952 and is advised by
Prof. W. A. Fisher of the school of journalism.

Sigma Alpha Eta
Sigma Alpha Eta is the national honorary for speech
and hearing therapy majors. Those who have served
a pledgeship are key members. Working to attain
this status are the associate members. To become
a key member an associate must have a 2.1 accumu-
lative average and a 3. the previous quarter. The
purposes of the fraternity are to create and stimu-
late interest in the field, to encourage professional
growth, to foster a spirit of unity, to inspire high
achievement and to aid in building good relations
with other departments. Highlight of the year was
the national convention in Cleveland. The Kent
chapter members served on committees and spon-
sored a display booth featuring our new Speech and
Hearing center. The group enjoys many social ac-
tivities throughout the year. A get-acquainted picnic
is held fall quarter as are parties during the holidays.
Prominent speakers are featured at the business
meetings held twice a month. Advisor is William
Weidner of the school of speech. Honorary members
who have made outstanding contributions to the
organization are selected at the end of each j^ear.

Verder loses newest title
For the first time since 1956, when it was ready
for residents, Verder hall has had to give up the
title of being the newest dormitory on campus. The
hall was named for the first dean of women. Ver-
der, located on Midway drive, houses approximately
375 women. Each room has three occupants with
the exception of a few singles. More activity is
being centered around Verder this year because
of the two new neighboring dorms which were
opened this fall. Verder's lounge is decorated in
shades of yellow and green. It has a recreation
room and its own cafeteria which is also used for
a winter formal and as a movie theater. The dorm
holds parties at holidays, exchange dinners with
other dorms and all-University mixers. The residents
hear speakers sponsored by the Social Education
committee. During Christmas they sing carols to
all the dorms and sorority and fraternity houses.
Verder participates in many University functions
and events. They won first place for their Home-
coming display of "The Big Game." Mrs. Esther
Kern is the resident counselor. She is assisted by
Miss Edith Herrington.
Lounges on the second and third floors of Verder are good places to relax or
study. Janet Hadley finds a comfortable spot on the table as
l.-r., Georgia Hodgkiss and Linda Danford share a sofa

Johnson houses 340 men
Johnson hall, built in 1956, was first called Stopher
B. It was renamed for Prof. John T. Johnson, a
member of Kent State's original faculty. Coming
here in 1912 he was director of science and photo-
graphy and served as Dean of Faculty. The dorm
houses about 340 students, both freshmen and up-
perclassmen. It is not all work and no play at
Johnson. There are semi-formals each quarter, a
wiener roast in the spring and a banquet winter
quarter. The men also have informal mixers and
coke parties during the year. Dances every Tuesday
and Thursday afternoon are a new activity added
to the men's social calendar. Johnsonites are en-
joying music with their meals this year as a result
of the purchase of a new record player and radio.
Speakers are mounted in the ceiling of the down-
stairs lounge and also in the cafeteria. The dorm
publication, "The Johnson Journal," supplies the
men with news of campus events. Each year
Johnson participates in Homecoming, Pork Barrel
and Campus Day. This year Anita corridor won
the dormitory football championship. Graduate
counselors James Kent, Coiet Sims and Joseph
Mallamo help handle the affairs of the dorm.
Having a "Summit" meeting in Johnson's lounge the night
before the exam are Hal Rogers, Tom Lazor, Doug Fox

Lowry is smallest dorm; friendliness prevails
Room inspection time means clean-up time. Using a mop.

are, l.-r., Myra Wilson, Sandy Eier and Rita Hancock.
Lowry hall on Hilltop drive is home away from
home for 140 Kent coeds. Friendliness is the key
word in the oldest and smallest dormitory on cam-
pus. The atmosphere is relaxed and homey. Each
year its residents choose to return there rather than
live in one of the newer, more modern dormitories.
Lowryites plan and participate in many activities
throughout the year. Each freshman coming into
the dorm has a big sister to help her the first
hectic days of college. A get-acquainted tea is
held in the fall for the big and little sisters. The an-
nual dorm formal is the highlight of its social activi-
ties. Lowry's size is no handicap when it comes to
winning trophies. Last year its "Swing Into Spring"
float won first place Campus Day. Lowry is the only
women's dorm on campus which does not campus its
women for lateness. Since fall quarter 1950 it has
been on the honor system. Coeds are on their honor
to sign in correctly. The dormitory also has a lounge
where women commuters may relax. International
students have their center in the old cafeteria where
foreign flags and literature are displayed.

Co-eds live in pipe alley
One of Kent State's smallest dormitories, Moulton
hall groaned under the strain of the record fall en-
rollment. Nearly 100 extra women lived there for
part of the quarter. Some of its more publicized resi-
dents were those living in "pipe alley," a converted
portion of the dormitory's basement. Although it
does not have the facilities of the newer dorms,
Moultonites refer to the aging building as "home."
"A kindred spirit and friendliness are the qualities
commonly found in Moulton," say its residents. The
north end of the dorm was once the University's
health center. This produced a unique situation since
the rest of the hall was used for women's housing.
Participating in all major University functions, the
women of Moulton hall take their share of the
awards. Latest additions to their collections were
trophies for the first place in 1959 Pork Barrel
and Rowboat Regatta and second place in Home-
coming. Moulton's music room has a hospital at-
mosphere when the Bloodmobile makes its quarterly
visits. Resident counselor is Miss Hermione Shantz.

Terrace is newly painted
Sporting a new coat of green paint, Terrace hall
opened its doors to the onslaught of new freshmen
and returning upperclassmen. All rooms and cor-
ridors were redecorated in the pastel shade during
the summer. Terrace is the largest dorm on campus,
with space for 720 girls. Most of the rooms are triples,
but there are also some single rooms. The dorm
operated as two separate imits when it opened
in 1954. They were united in 1956. Terrace boasts a
large sunken lounge with two fireplaces, comfort-
able chairs and a grand piano. The lounge is the
spot where all house meetings and dorm parties are
held. The hall also has two recreation rooms equip-
ped with television sets, ping-pong tables and candy
and soft drink machines. In order to handle the
meals for residents, there are two cafeterias. Lines
wound to great lengths this fall when girls from
Prentice hall ate in the dining rooms until their
cafeteria was opened in November. Engleman hall
residents also use the dining facilities. The cafe-
terias are also used for studying in the evening.

Dorm has social events
Terrace added another trophy to its collection by
capturing the volleyball prize this fall. They also
won honorable mention for their Homecoming dis-
play. Each year the girls hold a semi-formal, mixers,
dress-up dinners and Halloween and Christmas
parties. The lounges off the second and third floors
are used for card parties and corridor meetings. This
holiday season the girls in each room decorated their
doors which were judged by resident counselors
from other dorms. The girls also held a caroling
party to serenade the sororities and fraternities. The
Terrace hall choir sings at many functions through-
out the year in addition to forming the nucleus for
the songfest group. The Terrace House council
meets every Monday night under the supervision of
Miss Marjorie Roush, executive director. Other mem-
bers of the largest staff of all the residences are
Mrs. Harriet Barrett and Mrs. Zoe Brundage, res-
ident counselors. Miss Audre Durbin is assistant
resident counselor, and Miss Maria Campbell is
serving the dorm as a graduate assistant.

Dunbar is modern dorm
Dick Wirth and Steve Uhall test their strength in a
game of Indian wrestling while Bill DeFranco
waits to challenge the victor.
Although originally built as a women's residence
hall, Dunbar will be a men's dormitory until the
fall of 1961. The new structure was converted be-
cause of a lack of housing facilities for men. Dunbar
is the scene for something new on campus this year.
It is the first time a resident counselor with his
wife has lived in a dormitory. Don Bushell and
his wife occupy an apartment on the first floor.
Although only open a few months, Dunbar has al-
ready won its first award. Its Homecoming display,
"Falcon Falls," won the second place prize in the
independent men's division. Social events for the
year include swim parties, open houses, a Dunbar-
Prentice semi-formal held in December and a spring
formal. Dunbar is the first residence on campus to
incorporate a Political Activities committee designed
to educate its residents on current campus affairs.
It is also the first to establish a Spirits and Awards
committee to create more school spirit in the resi-
dence hall. Dunbar men dine in Prentice cafete-
ria where a dress-up dinner is held every week.
Dallas Bailey, Tom Shells and David Hunter are
graduate counselors at the new dormitory.
Prentice has co-ed dining
Named after May Prentice, first woman faculty
member, Prentice is the newest womens dormitory
on campus. Residents first occupied the building this
fall. It is one of the most modern dorms here, con-
taining such features as built-in dressers and closets.
Prentice's cafeteria, which also serves Dunbar, its
''brother dorm," has many new conveniences. The
kitchen may be closed off, and one of the two dining
halls used for dances. Girls from Verder are also
served here on weekends. The cafeterias were com-
pleted in early November. The five corridors of Pren-
tice are identified by male names. They include
Zeke, Scott, Kevin, Ichabod and Cassanova. Pren-
tice scored a first among women's dorms with its
publication of a paper, "The Prentice Post," issued
semi-monthly. Girls from Prentice have joined the
men of Dunbar to form cheering sections at many
football and basketball games. The swimming team
presented the dorm with its first trophy by winning
the intramural championship. Miss Beverly Belson
is head resident counselor, and Miss Beryl Brown is
the dorm's assistant counselor.
A feature of Prentice rooms are built-in shelves

Stopher, the oldest men's dormitory on campus, was
built in 1949. It is the first section of an intended
quadrangle of men's dormitories which will be com-
pleted in several years. Its cafeteria connects with
Johnson hall, the second section of the proposed
quadrangle. The men of Stopher have four lounges
which offer facilities for studying, playing ping-
pong, watching television or relaxing. They also
have a terrace above the cafeteria where dances are
held. Each year there are many social events for
Stopherites. Included among them are a winter and
a spring formal, a beatnik party and a barbecue for
seniors. Following the tradition of past years,
Stopher again held a Christmas party for the un-
derprivileged children of the Kent-Ravenna area.
Stopherites added a trophy to their collection this
fall by winning first place in the independent
men's division for Homecoming displays. The Sto-
pher ice-breaker in the fall is especially planned
for incoming freshmen. Richard Powers and
Kenneth Saurman are counselors with Dennis Cooke,

Hall connects to Union
Heavily covered with ivy and shaped hke a big W,
Engleman hall is the only structure on campus with
a direct passage to the Union. Although once used
as an upperclass dorm only, 238 girls from all classes
now call Engleman their second home. The majority
of Engleman girls live in single rooms, but the dorm
also has many doubles, triples and quads. The dormi-
tory has no cafeteria, and residents eat in Terrace
hall. Engleman's comfortable lounge, with a tele-
vision set, leather chairs and sofas and a fireplace,
is found on the second floor of the building. Come
spring, one of the most appreciated spots in Engle-
man is the sun deck which overlooks lilac lane.
Other features are a patio and pool which are be-
hind the dorm. Active in all campus activities,
Engleman's interpretation of "Which I Wuz" won
first place in the independent women's division of
songfest last spring. The residents also topped all
other women's dorms in overall point average for
last year. Mrs. Ruth Thompson is resident coun-
selor. She is assisted by Miss Pat Vanden Avond.

University police patrol campus and dormitories
Officially organized in 1950, the University police
force has advanced from watchman status to that of
a 19-man full-time unit. In their cruiser they cover
more miles a year in protecting the University's
360 acres than policemen do in a city the size of
Kent. Their duties consist of maintaining patrol-
men in the women's dorms; checking the buildings;
handling bank details, especially at registration; in-
vestigating campus accidents; taking students to the
health center and giving tickets for illegal student
parking. Depending upon the weather, they may
give as few as five or as many as 75 tickets a day.
Students are fined $1 the first time, $2 the second
and $5 thereafter throughout the year. After the
third violation each violator receives a notice, and
his name is referred to the Dean's office. In one
quarter some 500 notices were sent to students for
parking on campus drives and in faculty parking
lots during class hours. More than 3,000 cars are
driven to Kent by students.

International teachers study education programs
Under the auspices of the International Teachers
Development program, Kent State University is a
laboratory for groups of teachers coming to the
United States to study various universities' educa-
tion programs. Visiting teachers are housed on
campus. They take part in seminars and have an
opportunity to attend classes, although they are
not enrolled as regular students. Their program
also includes visits to schools in Northeastern Ohio,
community trips and school visits and classroom
observations. The main purpose of the program is
for these educators to learn more about American
education and to see it in action. Another objective
is to promote and spread human understanding and
appreciation of various people from many different
lands. KSU is one of the 11 colleges and universi-
ties asked this year to provide training for interna-
tional teachers. In 1959, the first year KSU partici-
pated in this program, the University was host to
22 international teachers. Thirty-four teachers, all
selected for their outstanding work as educators in
their own lands, arrived this fall for three months of
intensive training on and off campus. The countries
which were represented at Kent are Mexico, Bar-
bados, W.I., Honduras, Peru, Panama, Haiti, Bolivia,
Columbia, Trinidad, Paraguay, Laos, Finland,
Greece, Nigeria, Italy, Australia, Zanzibar and
Norway. Dr. Frederick H. Kingdon, assistant pro-
fessor of elementary education, is University coord-
inator of the program.

Officers, l.-r., standing: Jan Snyder, Sec; Bev Law,

are chosen by a rotating plan.
Panhellenic council is the governmental system
under which the eight sororities on campus work
together to set up their regulations and to accom-
plish joint projects. They also decide penalties for
violations of the regulations. There are three dele-
gates from each sorority including the preisdent,
eight rush counselors and four officers. A rotating
of officers' chairs among the sororities each year
assures equal representation. The rush counseling
is a new addition to the Panhell. It was set up this
past year with a counselor in each dorm to advise
rushees and pledges and to answer particular
questions that might be asked about sorority life.
In addition, "It's All Greek To Me," is a pamphlet
published to introduce the various sororities and
Greek life in general to rushees. "Bermuda" parties
and open houses during the fall give the freshman
women a taste of sorority rush. The group strives to
encourage a high standard of personal as well as
academic development for all sorority members. An
Induction banquet is held in the spring for officers,
and a Scholarship tea is sponsored for outstanding
scholastic sorority members. The past year Panhel-
lenic council raised money to help a Student Council
project. Miss Sara Berenson, associate dean of wom-
en, is advisor to the council.
Inter-fraternity council is the governmental body
which coordinates the activities of fraternities at
Kent State University. All eighteen fraternities
are members of this organization. One member
and the president from each fraternity are seated
on the council. It is the judicial body representing
approximately 800 fraternity men to the University
and to the public. IFC has set up a standard policy
which governs such functions as formal and informal
rushing; it also publishes a booklet which deals with
formal rushing during winter quarter. The group
holds a quarterly advisors' banquet, and at the spring
dinner a trophy is awarded to the outstanding frater-
nity advisor. Inter-fraternity council also awards
trophies to winners of each of the nine intramural
sports. The fraternities compete against one an-
other in this program. In cooperation with Pan
Hellenic council IFC sponsors Greek Week. The
local group is a member of the National Interfrater-
nity conference. Last year Inter-fraternity council
initiated a program to support civic projects. They
contributed to the March of Dimes and the World
University Service. Roland Patzer, assistant dean
of men and director of student activities is advisor.

Alpha Chi Omega
Although Alpha Chi Omega is celebrating its 10th
anniversary at Kent State university this year, it is
still the youngest sorority on campus. The chapter
moved into a new house last year. The national
philanthropy project is helping the cerebral palsied.
At least one day each year is set aside by the local
Gamma Lambda chapter to work on projects which
will benefit these people. In addition the Alpha
Chi's work with the speech and hearing clinic. Once
each year the sorority members and their dates re-
vert to their childhood. Dress typical of five and six-
year-olds is appropriate for the "Lollipop hop." The
A Chi O's also hold a winter formal. Their version
of "Wild Strawberries" earned them third place in
the 1960 Pork Barrel. They placed third in Campus
Day Songfest competition with "It's A Grand Night
for Singing." All this activity has not hurt the soror-
ity's scholastic achievements. It has received several
national awards for high scholastic attainment. The
colors of A Chi O are olive green and scarlet. It
was organized in 1885 at DePauw university.

Alpha Gamma Delta
The Alpha Gams' participation in activities paid off
this past year. They were winners of the May Day re-
lays, and their Homecoming Day house decorations
won the trophy for first place. In the sorority intra-
mural sports competition the Alpha Gam team took
home another first place trophy by beating all the
other entrants in the swimming meet. Their national
philanthropy project is working with and for ce-
rebral palsied children. Locally the group has
extended its activities to include a Christmas party
for the mentally retarded children of the area. Alpha
Gamma Delta is one of Kent State's three sororities
founded at Syracuse university. It began in 1904 and
is the youngest national on campus. Beginning as Pi
Kappa Sigma, a local sorority, in 1926, the Alpha Nu
chapter was installed here in 1947. Ribbons of red,
buff and green distinguish Alpha Gamma Delta
pledges. Each year they sponsor the All-University
Pledge tea. The sorority's social functions are a
winter date dance, a spring dinner dance and the
Feast of Roses after activation of pledges.
Trying to set a new record for crowding telephone
booths are Marian Bonsor, Miriam Bonsor, Ellen
Zuelsdorf, Carol Pay, Carol Morton, Linda Elmore.
Alpha Phi, founded in 1872 at Syracuse university,
is the oldest national sorority on campus. The local
chapter, Beta Omega, was installed in 1948. The
Pork Barrel trophy for second place in the sorority
division went to the Phis for their "Moment of
Decision." They also placed second in Homecom-
ing house decorations. Two more trophies for pledges
to polish were added by the organization's placing
first in both volleyball and basketball in sorority
intramural sports competition. "Little hearts need
big hearts" reminds all Phis of their national phil-
anthropy, helping children who have heart diseases.
Underprivileged children in Kent are treated to a
Christmas party by Alpha Phi and Sigma Nu, its
brother fraternity. The sorority's pledges wear rib-
bons of silver and bordeaux over their silver ivy
leaf pledge pins. Each winter the Phis present their
pledges to the Greek world at their annual All
Greek formal held during winter quarter. The
pledges are serenaded by their sisters and the broth-
ers of Sigma Nu. Each is given flowers.

Alpha Xi Delta
Underprivileged children reap the benefits from the
Alpha Xi Delta's philanthropy program. At Christ-
mastime children from Kent welfare agencies are
entertained and given presents at a party. The
Alpha Xi's also contribute to an international schol-
arship fund for five Dutch students. This year the
sorority remodeled its house's upstairs hall into a
lounge. Another trophy was added to the collection
on their mantle when their "Song of the South"
placed first at Pork Barrel. The Xi's also welcomed
a new housemother. Founded at Lombard college,
Galesburg, 111., in 1893, the local Beta Tau chapter
was installed in 1947. Their Sunday night spaghetti
suppers have become a near tradition on campus.
Instead of the usual "Pumkin Prom," the Alpha
Xi's held a "Heaven or Hell" party with Delta
Upsilon, their brother fraternity on campus. The
pledges of Alpha Xi Delta wear ribbons of double
blue and gold over an oblong pin. The winter
pledges are presented at the Pink Rose formal spring
quarter. A gold diggers dance is given by the pledges.
The financial accounts of the sorority are studied by,

Omegas are building a new house in the near future.
Last spring the Chi O's purchased a successor to
Percy I, a flashing red Buick ambulance appropri-
ately dubbed Percy II. She is named for the Greek
goddess, Persephone. On Honors day the sorority
presents a $25 award to the outstanding senior wom-
an in the field of sociology. All faculty members
and students are invited to the Chi Omega spon-
sored annual All-University tea. The chapter visits
a home for the aged at Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas. At the latter time Kappa Sigma joins them
in singing carols. Chi O alumna host the active
chapter at the Eleusinian banquet. In the spring
the women entertain their pinmates and dates at
a buffet dinner dance. The Lambda Delta chapter
of Chi Omega was the first national sorority on
Kent State's campus. It was installed June 7, 1947.
The national was founded in 1875 at the Uni-
versity of Arkansas. Cardinal and straw are the
colors of Chi Omega. The owl is one of its symbols.

A large amount of talent and brains paid off for
the DG's last year. After many days of practice
they won first place in Songfest on Campus Day.
The core of their success might lie in their two
quartets which brought home a first and a third
place trophy from the annual spring quartet contest
sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega. All this activity
didn't seem to harm their classwork; they were
awarded the scholarship trophy for having the high-
est point average among sororities. Although the
Delta Gammas are active on campus they take time
out every day to work on their philanthropy project
which is sight conservation and aid to the blind.
The Gamma Epsilon chapter established at Kent
State in 1947, has been reading to a blind stu-
dent for the last four years. Since he is graduat-
ing this year they have begun working with a blind
family. On the social side, one of the biggest events
of the year is their winter formal when the Anchor
Man is selected. This honor is given to the man who
has done the most for the sorority in the past year.

Nationally Delta Zeta supports three philanthro-
pies: Gallaudet college for the deaf, hearing aids
and Carville Leper colony. The local chapter buys
hearing aids for the needy. In conjunction with
this philanthropy, the DZ's are completely furnish-
ing a classroom in the new speech and hearing
center. This Delta Zeta room, a Semicentennial gift
to the University, is equipped with the most modern
devices for the care of the deaf. Each year the
sorority recognizes an outstanding faculty member
with a tea in his honor. This year the Kent State
and the Baldwin- Wallace DZ's initiated a Christmas
formal which will become an annual function of
the chapters. The spring formal is the climax of
Delta Zetas' social activity. A medley from "South
Pacific" won them the second place trophy in Cam-
pus Day Songfest. They copped second place in
Greek Week Olympics. National headquarters has
cited the Kent chapter for its campus activities
and standards program. Organized at Kent in 1948
the colors of Delta Zeta are old rose and vieux green.

Gamma Phi Beta
Wearers of the crescent at Kent State excel in
sports. The Gamma Phi Betas won the Greek leap
at the Olympic day games Greek Week. In intramu-
ral competition among sororities the organization
won trophies in softball and in bowling. As a climax
Gamma Phi Beta was awarded the WRA All-Sports
trophy for earning the most points in the sorority
intramural program. Again the Gamma Phis' Hawai-
ian leis brought them first place at Penny Carni-
val. The sorority collects and repairs toys for the
Welfare agency. It also makes up a Christmas
basket for an underprivileged Kent family. Nation-
ally the sorority aids summer camps for under-
privileged children in Colorado and Canada. An
Easter egg hunt is staged for the alums' children
by the pledges. Gamma Phi Beta was founded at
Syracuse university in 1874 and installed here in
1947. Its colors are mode and brown. The top social
event of the year is the Sweetheart dance. Gamma
Phis also have a winter formal. May Day relays are
annually co-sponsored with Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Alpha Epsilon Pi
High scholarship is one of the characteristics of
Alpha Epsilon Pi. This is shown by its w^inning the
Inter-fraternity council trophy for the highest schol-
astic average for the 1958-1959 school year. In
addition to this award, AEPi also received a Scholar-
ship trophy from its national headquarters. Founded
at New York university in 1913, Alpha Epsilon Pi
was the first national social fraternity to begin at
that university. One of the first national fraterni-
ties at Kent State, the Phi Deuteron chapter was
formed from a local group in 1949. The lion is the
fraternity's symbol. It is not all work and no play
with the AEPi's. They enjoy the lighter side of
campus life also. Each year they hold a Wild West
and a Gay Paree party. The annual winter formal is
the climax of their social season. At Penny Carnival
the group won over all the other fraternities. Their
goldfish in plastic bags were almost as numerous as
students on campus. This year Alpha Epsilon Pi
made t heir first annual Scholarship award. The
winner received a quarter's tuition.

Alpha Tau Omega
The ATO's hold the honor of being the first Greek
letter fraternity organized after the Civil War. In
1865, three Confederate veterans organized the first
chapter in Richmond, Va., in order to bring the
North and South together in a fraternal brother-
hood. The local chapter, Ohio Zeta Zeta, made its
appearance on campus in 1953. Since it was started
at Indiana in 1950, Help Week has been an outstand-
ing feature of ATO activities. The Alpha Taus have
made their presence known on the athletic scene.
They captured the All-Sports trophy in Inter-frater-
nity competition and won the tug of war at Rowboat
Regatta. With three dances during the year, the
brothers enjoy an active social calendar. A Christ-
mas dance is held fall quarter; in the spring there is
a formal dinner-dance. Highlighting the ATO's year
is the White Tea Rose ball winter quarter. The
sweetheart of ATO for the coming year reigns as
queen at the ball. She is selected from eight repre-
sentatives of the new winter quarter sorority pledge
classes by a vote of the fraternity members.

Kent's only independent fraternity, the Collegiates,
was organized by seven men in November, 1954. The
group tries to promote University tradition and
fellowship, cultural and social life among its mem-
bers. The role of the individual is stressed in group
living. Although only a young organization, it has
collected quite a few trophies. The Collegiates are
active in intramural competition. They won second-
place trophy in Inter-fraternity football and placed
first in bowling last year. Their quartet won
the Alpha Phi Omega quartet singing contest for
three consecutive years. A unique feature of the
Collegiates is that they have no pledge period; in-
stead, a three week period of orientation is substi-
tuted. Many small informal parties are held by the
Collegiates, but the highpoint of their social activi-
ties is the annual spring formal. In November a
Founders' Day banquet is held. Once a year Collegi-
ates and their dates trade traditional dress for garb
ranging from Roman togas to space uniforms. These
oddly dressed people go to the Masquerade party.

Delta Sigma Pi
Delta Sigma Pi is unique among fraternities because
it is both a social and a professional fraternity. With
a desire to foster the study of business in universities
and to reap the benefits of social fraternity life, it
was founded on the campus of New York university
in 1907. The local chapter, formerly Delta Kappa
Psi, a local fraternity, Beta Pi, was installed in
1942. The KSU chapter schedules field trips to mer-
cantile and industrial establishments and invites
speakers from the business world to further profes-
sional aspects of the fraternity. On its social calen-
dar Beta Pi includes a fall quarter semi-formal, the
Monte Carlo party and the spring formal at which
the Rose of Delta Sig is elected by the brothers. Each
year a Gold Scholarship key is awarded by Delta
Sigma Pi to the male graduating senior who has the
highest academic record in the entire course of com-
merce and business administration subjects. Last
year Beta Pi received the national's Efficiency Con-
test award. Dr. Stanley Corey, professor of eco-
nomics, is the Kent state chapter advisor.

Delta Tau Delta
Having spent 25 years as a local and 10 years as
a national fraternity Delta Tau Delta has established
itself firmly on the KSU campus. Men with wide
and varying backgrounds have given the chapter its
reputation for a close brotherhood. Delts are active
in several campus activities. Wearers of the golden
square hold important positions in student govern-
ment, campus publications, Blue Key, University
Theatre and varsity athletics. The Delt solidarity
has paid off when it has come to such projects as
Homecoming, Campus Day, Greek Week and Song-
fest. The trophy case at the house on Main street
holds the awards the Delts have recently won in
these events. But University functions are not the
only place that the Delts have emerged victorious.
Social life is very important around the fraternity
house, and the social calendar is well supplied with a
variety of parties including one with a shipwreck
theme, serenades, formals, dinner dances, hayrides,
stags and other functions designed to give a broad
aspect to the fraternity's social side.
By staying in, Bob Doane gets some welcome advice

The national office of Delta Upsilon awarded the

the President's Trophy for Excellence. It is given
to the outstanding chapter in each of the four divi-
sions for making citations. Locally, the DU's won
Songfest and placed first in Pork Barrel, in addition
to gaining several intramural awards. A unique
feature of Delta Upsilon is that secrets, generally
associated with fraternities, are absent from its
structure. For its social functions Delta Upsilon
holds formal dances in the winter and spring quar-
ters and the "Pumkin Prom" with their sister soror-
ity, Alpha Xi Delta. As a part of their responsibility
to the community, the brothers take an interest in
fund raising activities. Founded in 1834 at Williams
college. Delta Upsilon is the nation's sixth oldest
social fraternity. The local chapter came under the
national structure in 1948 when Kent's first Greek-
letter fraternity. Kappa Mu Kappa, became Delta
Upsilon. It was Kent State University's first na-
tionally affiliated fraternity.

annual Soap Box Derby held on the morning of
Rowboat Regatta. As a community service, Epsilon
Rho participates in the singing of Christmas carols
at the county's Old People's home. Each pledge
class is required to construct a project which could
be used at the chapter house. On the social side
Kappa Sigma sponsors several parties, dances and
banquets during the year. The highlights of its social
calendar are a spring and a winter formal and a
Sweetheart formal. As a national fraternity, Kappa
Sigma was founded at the University of Virginia in
1869. The Kent State University chapter, form.erly
Kappa Sigma Chi, was installed in 1950.

Phi Delta Theta
Duty to the individual, the group and the community
might well be the motto of Phi Delta Theta frater-
nity. The varied activities of this group make valid
their claim of a brotherhood. Men in the chapter
have recently won such awards as the Bowman
award and the MSA award. Working as a group the
Phi Delts took third place in the 1959 Campus Day
Songfest. A community service project which the
Phi Delts sponsor each spring is a field trip for
the deaf children of this area. The Phi Delta Theta
national office awarded the local chapter a certi-
ficate of outstanding achievement in community
service. Social life gets its share of attention too.
The Phi Delts co-sponsor the Ohio Lambda ball with
the Sig Eps and the SAE's. Other annual social
functions are She Delt week, the winter formal and
the spring C and T dance. The pledges sponsor the
"Little All Greek" for other pledge classes. Mem-
bers of Phi Delta Theta can be found in every form
of campus activity from Blue Key, national men's
honorary, to editor of the Daily Kent Stater.
Three heads are better than one in finding a good

Phi Kappa Tau
Walking down Main street any day of the week, one
of the songs likely to be heard is "Fight on, you Phi
Tau warriors!" The men of Phi Kappa Tau, Beta
Mu chapter, pride themselves on the closeness of
their undivided brotherhood. Men of Phi Tau can
be found in virtually every phase of campus activity.
The bearers of the Phi Kappa Tau pin have repre-
sented their chapter on Student Council and as top
officers in Inter-fraternity council, Newman club,
Stopher Hall House council and on the staff of the
Daily Kent Stater. Working as a group they have
won trophies for their combined efforts on Home-
coming, Campus Day, Rowboat Regatta and Greek
Week. The chapter has also received awards from
its national office for scholastic success. Besides
scholarship the men of Phi Kappa Tau have a well
rounded social life. The Kent chapter has an an-
nual Softball game and picnic with the University
of Akron Phi Tau's. The highlight of the year is the
Spring Sweetheart formal; at this dance the chap-
ter presents its Sweetheart.

Phi Kappa Theta
Phi Kappa Theta was formed in 1958 when Theta
Kappa Phi and Phi Kappa, fraternities for Catholic
men, merged. Previously the Kent chapter, organ-
ized in 1949, was known as the Phi chapter of Theta
Kappa Phi. It received two awards from national
headquarters last year. They were the national
Chapter Improvement award and the Sun trophy
for the best chapter publication. With three major
dances the Phi Kap social calendar is well filled.
Each fall a Sweater hop is held, with a Sweater
queen selected to reign over it. At the Gold Cup
formal winter quarter each of the brothers' dates
receives a symbol of her beauty. In the springtime
at the Sweetheart formal the Sweetheart of Phi
Kappa Theta for the coming year is chosen. The
fraternity has something of which no other frater-
nity can boast — its own private lake. As a result,
members often hold swimming and picnicking part-
ies. The men of Phi Kappa Theta have close ties
with Newman club. Catholic student organization.
Each group helps the other to their mutual benefit.

Phi Sigma Kappa
With its cardinal principles of brotherhood, scholar-
ship and character, Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity
guides its functions on the campus. To promote one
of its principles, brotherhood, the chapter sponsors
several social functions for its members. These are
highlighted by Founder's Day festivities, the Snow-
ball formal and the spring formal. The second
cardinal principle, scholarship, is advanced in the
chapter by staying near the top scholastically on
campus. During fall quarter. Phi Sigma Kappa
ranked highest among Kent's fraternities. By com-
bining the first two rules, the brothers develop
character, their third cardinal principle. Phi Sigma
Kappa was formed on the University of Massachu-
setts campus May 15, 1873. Kent's local chapter Beta
Tetarton, became a part of the national organization
on May 10, 1950. Since the chapter completes ten
years of existence at Kent State this year, the Phi
Sig's national magazine will feature the University
during the Semicentennial celebration as well as the
Beta Tetarton chapter.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon
In the belief that a variety of talent and ability
enriches the individual personality of each member,
Sigma Alpha Epsilon strives to maintain a vi'ell-
rounded chapter. Sigma Alpha Epsilon got its start
at the University of Alabama in 1856 and came to
Kent State in 1953. Locally, Ohio Lambda chapter
placed second in Homecoming house decorations and
Campus Day's Songfest. As for the social activities
of SAE, the chapter sponsors the Ohio Lambda Ball
with the Phi Delts and the Sig Eps. Other social
events on the SAE calendar are the spring "Her
Loveliness" formal, the winter Minerva club dance
and the fall Anniversary Ball. During the football
season, Ohio Lambda chapter presented trophies to
the outstanding lineman and the outstanding back
of each game. The men sponsor the gladiator games
at Rowboat Regatta. An almost endless task for
pledges of SAE is repainting the fraternity's sym-
bols, the concrete lions guarding the sidewalk, after
the many campus "artists" have decorated them with
everything including tar-and-feathers.

Some of the proverbial midnight oil is expended on
work that has Richard Schwarz and
Gene Tiberio momentarily puzzled.
Have you ever had the door to the Administration
building politely opened for you by a gentleman
wearing a black baseball cap? Students, members
of the faculty and guests receive this special treat-
ment about three weeks out of the year when the
pledges of Sigma Nu are going through Help Week.
On the social side, Zeta Gamma chapter co-sponsors
the All-Greek formal with the Alpha Phi's, its
sister sorority. The fraternity also holds the White
Rose formal in the spring and the Anniversary dance
to commemorate the chapter's affiliation with the
national organization. Each group of pledges holds a
"Scummers hop" for the actives. Sigma Nu was
founded at Virginia Military institute in 1869, and
the local chapter was established on the campus in
1949 as the second national fraternity. Richard
Schwarz won the fraternity's $200 Foundation schol-
arship. For local honors, Sigma Nu won the All-Uni-
versity intramural wrestling championship in the
fall. The brothers hold an annual Christmas party
for underprivileged children.

Sigma Phi Epsilon
Just ask anyone on campus who lives behind the
"Red Door," and he will say the brothers of Sigma
Phi Epsilon. Last year the Sig Ep quartet was first
in the Alpha Phi Omega singing quartet contest.
First place in the gladiator races at Rowboat Re-
gatta went to the fraternity. Then they won a first,
a second and a third place in Greek Week activities.
Founded in 1901 at Richmond university in Virginia,
Sigma Phi Epsilon is the nation's second largest
fraternity. The Ohio Lambda chapter at Kent was
organized in 1953. It was formerly known as Chi
Alpha fraternity. The Sig Eps received three awards
from their national headquarters this year: the five-
year Lamp fund award; the Ulysses S. Dubach award
and the Clifford B. Schott key. Each year the broth-
ers hold two formal dances. Dads' old raccoon coats
are taken out of mothballs for the Roaring Twen-
ties party while tuxedos are the dress at the Play-
boy party. As part of their duties pledges carry
books for sorority girls and purple and red bricks.

"Alma Mater First and Theta Chi for Alma Mater."
The brothers of Theta Chi strive to uphold this
motto during their University and graduate life.
More than 100 years ago a group of young students
from Norwich university in Norwich, Vt., formed
the first chapter of Theta Chi fraternity. The Delta
Tau chapter was founded on our campus in 1953. The
brothers place a high value on working together.
This is shown by a first place prize in the '59 Pork
Barrel and a second place prize in the same event
this year. Once a year around Halloween time the
brothers of Theta Chi return to their childhood and
create all sorts of monster costumes in preparation
for their well-known monster party. The members
entertain their dates and pinmates at the annual
winter and spring formal dinners and dances. The
big social event of the year is the regional Corral for
the chapters in this area. Last year the dance was
held in Allegheny, Pa. The dream girl of Theta Chi
selected at this dance last year was Joyce Bican from
Kent State University.

Alpha Phi Alpha
One of Kent's newer fraternities, Alpha Phi Alpha
has in its short time on campus seen its members
participate in YMCA, IFC, Blue Key, Student Coun-
cil and UCF. The development of leaders and the
cultivation of high ideals are the aims of the chapter
and its individual members. 1960 will mark the 55th
year of the founding of Alpha Phi Alpha at Cornell
university. Originally known as the Sphinx club,
the KSU chapter has come a long way since its early
days. Sphinx club's efforts for national recognition
were rewarded on January 24, 1957, when they re-
ceived the charter designating them Epsilon Delta
chapter. Besides emphasizing scholarship, the men
of Alpha Phi Alpha also participate in University in-
tramurals. Members of the chapter are on the dif-
ferent varsity athletic teams. Outstanding players
on the football, basketball and wrestling teams can
be found on the rolls of Epsilon Delta. But the motto
of the chapter will always remain, "First of all,
servants of all, we shall transcend all." Dr. O. W.
Ritchie of the sociology department is the advisor.

Kappa Alpha Psi
Although a young group, the men of Kappa Alpha
Psi have taken their place among Kent's fraternities.
Since their founding on March 15, 1949, the brothers
of Gamma Tau chapter have developed a close and
spirited brotherhood. The enthusiasm of this group
is best exemplified by their participation in many
campus activities. Representative of the varied
University functions in which the diversity of the
brothers has been put to good use are Penny Carn-
ival, Campus Day and an annual guide right pro-
gram. Belief that one of the jobs of a fraternity is
the support of local philanthropies and community
services, Kappa Alpha Psi has worked closely with
the Community Chest. A distinguished record in
University intramurals is ample proof that team-
work has paid off for the brothers. But KSU intra-
murals is not the only field for the more athletically
inclined. Several members of the varsity football,
baseball, cross country and track teams are among
members of Kappa Alpha Psi. Prof. Walter Stewart,
political science instructor, is the advisor.

The Delta colony is the advance group of Phi Gamma
Delta. This spring the colony members plan to be-
come Fiji's and Kent's newest fraternity. The Phi
Gams moved into a new house this year. The chap-
ter has already made its mark in University competi-
tion. It won the tug-of-war and hop-skip and jump
events on Olympic Day during Greek Week and
captured third place in Homecoming house decora-
tions. Founded at Washington and Jefferson college
in 1848, a unique feature of Phi Gamma Delta is that
it has more graduate than undergraduate chapters.
As the older fraternities, the organization has an
active social life. During winter quarter members
treat their dates to a formal dinner-dance. A tradi-
tion of the Phi Gams is the Fiji island party. Bare
feet, sarongs, eating with fingers and other native
customs replace the usual, civilized Kent Stater's
habits. Greasepaint transforms the pale Northerners
to the tawny shades of the South Sea islanders. The
party is usually held in an area barn. A tropical
scene completed with sand and palm trees is created.

floor scrubbers at the Phi Gam house, Cliff
Rudd, Bill Erdos, Matt Clark and John Reid.

Flashes upset Miami
No one could have picked a more perfect stage for
an upset. Before 23 visiting high school bands, hon-
ored Dads and guest legislators, the Golden Flashes
handed Miami university their first Mid-American
conference loss since 1952, 14-6. Desire and sheer
determination were key factors in ending the Red-
skin winning streak over Kent at six games. A host
of Kent linemen, led by senior end Fred Rothfuss,
blocked a first quarter Miami punt, and quarterback
Dick Mostardo grabbed the ball and raced 50 yards
for the game's first score. Dave Washington scored
from a spread formation to give the Flashes an 8-0
lead. Rothfuss blocked another punt in the second
quarter which was recovered by guard Tom Darrah
on the Miami 47-yard line, but Kent was unable to
capitalize on the break. In the third quarter, Kent
guard Dick Barber recovered a fumble on the Miami
32. Five plays later, Mostardo capped runs by John
Henry Martin and Chuck Naso with a 20-yard scor-
ing run. Washington's conversion attempt was stop-
ped short, and the Flashes had to settle for a 14-0
lead. The Redskins fought back as they scored on
a 66-yard drive after recovering a Kent fumble.
The final whistle sounded an end to the Miami jinx.

On -again off -again Flashes post 5-3 season
A record opening night crowd of 7500 attended the
first showing of the 1959 Golden Flashes as they
went against the Yellow Jackets of Baldwin-Wal-
lace college under the lights of Memorial stadium.
Weakened by losses in the Flashes' forward wall,
Kent called upon All-MAC quarterback Dick Mos-
tardo to match throwing arms with B-W's Chuck
Brady. Brady threw for both Yellow Jacket scores,
but he was no match for Kent as halfback John
Henry Martin scored twice to lead the 46-12 rout.
The impressive B-W win gave little indication of
the 5-3 seesaw season which was in store for the
Flashes. The following week Kent went into the
Ohio university game as six-point favorites, but
came out on the short end, 46-0. Beginning and end-
ing the game on Oil's one-yard line, Kent was unable
to score as the Bobcats capitalized on pass intercep-
tions to deal the worst defeat suffered by a Rees
coached team since 1942. A burst of spirit sent the
Golden Flashes over Miami, defending MAC cham-
pions, 14-6, followed by a not-too-impressive 46-7
victory over a conference cellar-dwelling Marshall
team. With two straight wins, the Flashes prepared
to meet Bowling Green.
Taking a break during the Baldwin- Wallace game are John Martin, 33; Dick
Mostardo, 22; Tom Darrah, 52; Robert Hall, 76 and Joe Chapon, 63.

BG ends MAC hopes
In the twenty-eighth renewal of one of Ohio's oldest
football rivalries, a lot of scores were to be settled
between Kent State and the Falcons of Bowling
Green. The Flashes were after their eighth straight
home victory. Kent's last home defeat was dealt by
the Falcons on Homecoming Day in 1957. Kent was
able to finish second in the MAC last year at the
expense of BG when they spoiled the Falcons' Home-
coming with an 8-7 upset. The Falcons came to Kent
with an undefeated team in a tie with OU for the
MAC crown. Four pass interceptions and poor kick-
ing defense were key factors which lead to Kent's
defeat, 25-8. A blocked punt nearly lead to a BG
touchdown in the first quarter, but the Flashes held
for four downs on the three-yard line. After a Falcon
field goal, the Reesmen again turned back a Bowling
Green drive at the one-yard line. Three plays later,
John Henry Martin, punting inside the ten, had the
ball slide off the side of his foot. The Falcons re-
covered on the one and scored two plays later. John
Shuster tallied for Kent as they trailed 11-8 at half-
time. In the second half. Bowling Green rolled over
Kent with hard tackling and determined charging.
During a brighter part
of the Homecoming game against
Bowling Green, John Shuster, 26, crosses the
goal line for Kent's only touchdown of the afternoon.

Ups and Downs -Golden Flashes Had Them
John Henry Martin has some difficulty getting this kick away. The
gallant attempt by Dick Mostardo to block three charging Bowling' Green
linemen is to no avail. The Falcons recovered the rolling foothall
on the one-yard line and scored two plays later
Concern for the success of their Flash teammates is
shown in the facial expressions of tackle Bill

Beat TU, Louisville
Ready for their game in the Glass Bowl of Toledo
the Golden Flashes won in a 14-7 game. Marty Gros-
jean took over the left halfback post of the injured
Martin to turn in an outstanding performance, while
fullback Chuck Naso and guard Dick Barber were
stellar attractions. The Flashes' taste of victory was
literally socked down their throats when the Broncos
of Western Michigan hit them with a 7-0 loss. The
game was followed by a protest by Rees to the MAC
for the illegal use of fists and elbows. Despite injur-
ies the Flashes upset the Louisville Cardinals, 16-14.
They drove 80 yards to a touchdown as quarterback
Mostardo scored from the eight-yard line. End Bob
Gusbar grabbed a mid-air fumble and jaunted 65
yards to score in the traditional underdog win over
the Louisville team.
Co-captains, Fred Rothfuss. 84, and Dick Mostardo, 22, get together to churn out
yardage against the Redskins of Miami. Both playing their final
year for the Golden Flashes, they represented Kent in the
post-season Gem Bowl in Erie, Pennsylvania on Thanksgiving day.
Breaks hurt Flashes
The action on the field, in the stands and on the side-
lines are what gives football its air of excitement.
Kent's up and down season did not live up to ex-
pectations, but succeeded in providing Kent fans
with many thrills. Finishing fourth in MAC compe-
tition, the season was called by Rees a "disappoint-
ment." The departure of seniors Steve Bodnar, Terry
McCorry, Wayne Neel, Tom Richey, Fred Rothfuss
and Dick Mostardo will leave gaps in the Kent lineup
which must be filled. In addition to returning letter-
men, a crop of freshman gridders will be given the
test at spring football training. Coach Dick Paskert's
yearling squad had a 1-2 record; defeating the Bowl-
ing Green frosh, 13-3, and losing to Akron, 19-6, and

Executing a perfect layup, Paul Walker, 12, is assured of another two-pointer

Basketball requires quick reflexes and Kent cagers, l.-r., Denny Bayer,
Captain Jack Moore, Jim Maddox and Chester Thomas show the ability to make the
changes from offensive to defensive play which are
so important in the fast break offense used by Coach Bill Bertka.
That's the way the ball bounces and all Jack Moore can
do is wave good-bye. Charley Boykin, 32, is unaware
that the ball is headed out of bounds,
and Akron's Harold McClothan is unable to stop it.
Kent loses tight tilts
Coach Bill Bertka fielded a promising group of
cagers in his 1959-60 team with the outlook described
as the most promising it had ever been. Compiling
a record of seven wins and 16 defeats, the Flashes
were an example of a team which had not yet come
of age. The record, however, does not speak correctly
of the overall season. Kent lost 17 games by nine
points or less, eight of them by less than six points.
Bertka switched from a control type game to the fast
break of offense to utilize some newly-found speed.
Kent averaged 73.9 pomts per game on offense but
gave up 77.5 points per game on defense. In spite of
a 2-10 MAC mark, the Flashes were able to provide
some hope for a brighter future. Oliver Wallace re-
turned after fall quarter to lead the Kent squad with
a 19.3 average for 17 games. Charley Boykin was
high scorer with 342 points, and second with a 14.9
average for all 23 games. Sophomore Harvey Hunt
showed great improvement while turning in out-
standing performances against Youngstown, Bald-
win-Wallace and Bowling Green. Captain Jack
Moore's play in the second Akron game and Pete
Baltic's 20 point performance in the second half of
the OU loss were leading show stoppers. Chester
Thomas, Hal Estis, Jim Maddox, Jerry McGinty and
Denny Bayer performed well.

should take a shot or wait lor his teammates
to set up a play pattern. A team player, he
decides to work for the good shot.
Record 6-17 season
In posting a losing season, the Flashes were often
victims of a situation which easily could have gone
either way. Kent came within a tap-in of tying
the Bowling Green game in the closing seconds. The
Flashes were often in the game until the final min-
utes as in the Pepperdine game when only time and
few points separated them from victory. Several
games were decided one way or the other at the free
throw line. Against Youngstown, Kent hit only 9
of 11 charity throws while the Penguins hit on 14
of 20. On the other hand, free throws kept the
Flashes in the BG game when they were outgoaled
from the field. Illness, injuries and ineligibility
teamed up to stagger Kent's hopes for a winning sea-
son. Wallace and Estis were not eligible until winter
quarter. The charleyhorse frequently hobbled Flash
cagers. The load is not expected to lighten next year.
The team will take a trip to the West coast over the
Christmas holidays. The Midwestern invitational
tourney will be revived with some big name schools
being suggested as possible additions to the Flashe's

34, and Climon Lee, 44, await his next
move in the 65-61 win over the Zips.
Sophomore Harry Kalbaugh brings the ball from
out of nowhere as he drives in for a shot. Chester
Thomas, a strong candidate
for the MAC honors next year, watches.
Three cagers graduate
Light graduation losses will help the Kent cage team
in their 1960-61 season. The Flashes will graduate
only Captain Jack Moore, John Bayer, and Jerry
McGinty. This leaves five juniors and six sopho-
mores, plus freshmen who will be joining the varsity.
Coach Harry Adams returned to Kent State after an
absence of 11 years to take charge of the freshman
team. He had been KSU's head basketball coach for
the 1946-47 and 47-48 seasons. The frosh hoopsters
posted a 6-8 record. For the first time a Kent State
team played one of its own extension centers, Ashta-
bula, with the Adams team coming out on top in
both games. The University of Pittsburgh frosh fell
to the yearling team, 70-58. Other impressive wins
were over Youngstown, John Carroll, and Toledo.
The junior Flashes lost to Bliss college, Cincinnati,
and twice to Bowling Green frosh. Bob Fleisher,
Denny Klug, Louis Domjan, Jerry Cleland and Bob
Zelatel were leaders in scoring for the Kent fresh-
men. Other players were Bill Connor, Tom Hauner,
Mike Klima, Ken Koveval, Chuck Lemons, Joe
Moore, Paul Serknis, Mitch Stone, George Washing-
ton, Don Wenner and David Zak.
During a time out in the second Akron game, cheerleader Marcie Huber is literally
up in the air over the Golden Flashes as they huddle for Bertka's instructions.
Heavyweight Art Youngblood, 6-3 sophomore, toys with the captain of the Marshall
team before pinning him. The Flashes shut out the Big Green, 38-0.
Mountaineers, Falcons hand Kent 7-2 season
The Kent State wrestling team went about its win-
ning ways under Coach Joe Begala as they compiled
a 7-2 record for the 1959-60 season. With losses to
West Virginia and Bowling Green, MAC champions,
the Flashes pushed the number of Begala wins to
210, against 36 losses and two ties. Captain Pat Sem-
ary took the 137-pound MAC title, and Jergen
Begala won the 177-pound MAC crown in the
tourney held in Kent's Memorial gymnasium. During
the regular season, Don lammarino wrestled in the
123-pound class, Don Nader, 130; Pat Eisenhut, 147:
Elmer Kress, 157; Emmet Jones. 167. Art Young-
blood challenged the injured Bob Hall for the heavy-
weight class. Begala will lose Semary, Jones and Al
Klinskey by graduation. The Golden Flash fresh-
man wrestling team went undefeated in their two
matches by beating Western Reserve, 26-6, and the
Akron YMCA, 31-3.

of practice have sharpened his

about to spin behind
his aggressive foe.
Outfielder John Steffas is greeted at home plate after his fifth inning home run
in the first game of a double header with Notre Dame. The circuit clout was one
of three runs in the fifth as the Flashes went on to cop Coach Matt Resick's

Flashes surprise MAC
When the 1959 baseball season rolled around, the
Kent nine were figured to be at least one year away
from a MAC flag. The big surprise came as the
dust cleared long enough to find the Flashes in a
do-or-die series with the Thundering Herd of Mar-
shall college. Kent won the first game but dropped
the second, 5-4, in 14 innings. Season's end found
Coach Matt Resick's club one-half game out of first
place, the highest MAC finish ever made by a Kent
diamond team. Their 16-7-1 mark was a new record
in victories. The doubleplay combination of short-
stop Jerry Dolcini, second baseman Dick Rollins,
and first baseman Paul Serra set a new mark at 23.
The long list of record breaking feats includes one
triple play, eight MAC wins, 145 runs, and a team
batting average of .308. Pitcher Marty Kane, center-
fielder Ed Warner and Rollins were named to the
All-MAC first team. Jerry Dolcini was named to the
third team. Rollins was also named to the NCAA
All-District squad. Dick Paskert's freshman team
lost their opener then reeled off seven straight wins
behind the hitting of Don DiSanza.

Crusa rated this team on a par with last year's record breaking shooters but they
were unable to beat Akron in their two meetings and finished with an 8-2 record.

John Hardman, l.-r.. Jack McClellan and Jim
Miller watch as Coach Crusa tallies scores.
Riflers fire from prone, kneeling and
standing positions for a possible 300 score.
Without much publicity and fanfare, the Kent State
rifle team goes about its business quietly, but effec-
tively. Compiling a 8-2 season record, the team had
a 1394.1 average, one of the highest in recent years.
Last year the KSU sharpshooters took the title in
the Lake Erie conference with ten straight wins, the
first perfect record in the conference. With all but
one man returning from the 1958-59 team. Coach
Charles Crusa again set his sights on the conference
crown. Akron U. played the role of the spoiler as
they halted the riflers winning streak at 13. Helping
to boost Kent's team average was George Naswadi
with 281.6, followed by Bill Gebhart, 281.3; Lou Bor-
os, 277.9; Jim Miller, 275.2; John Hardman. 274;
Glenn Kinser, 270.88; and Jack McClellan. 267.9.

KSU linksmen end season with 10-4 record
Kent State's golf team, under the direction of How-
ard Morrette, posted a 10-4 mark for the 1959 season.
The linksmen finished fifth in the MAC champion-
ship match and sixth in the 36-hole Ohio Intercolle-
giate tourney. Captain Ron Vargo, who had low
score in six of the golfers' matches, had the best in-
dividual round with 70. Brad Tingle and Jon
Wegenek trailed him with 71. Wegenek's low round
paced the victory over Geneva. Bill Bosshard led
the team in individual average.

Cinder men jolt records
Although Kent thinclads recorded a losing season
record of four wins and five losses in 1959, they were
able to topple some school records. Captain Tom
Maurer set a new mile time of 4; 22.5. Larry Colucci
bettered the 440 time and Henry Woodard tied the
100-yard dash mark. The 880-yard relay team chop-
ped seconds off the old record. Dick FoUett threw
the discus for a 147 foot 2 inch record. The Flashes
placed fifth in both the All-Ohio and MAC meets.
The cross country team split a 5-5 season mark. Gil
Grey lead Coach Jay Fisher's harriers in scoring.
The high point of the season was Kent's upset win
over Oberlin and Ohio university to take second
place in the All-Ohio meet at Baldwin-Wallace.
Western Michigan won its third straight MAC meet
as the Flashes finished last in a field of five. Bob
Taipale, Steve (Ed) Simpson, and Bill Maurer close-
ly followed Grey in the scoring department. Richie
Twark is captain-elect of the 1960 cross-country
team. The freshman cross country team won over
Case frosh but lost to Ohio U. and Bowling Green.
Tom Maurer takes the lead in a two
mile race. Andy Bajcsa, a Hungarian
refugee, set the record at KSU for
the two mile in 1958 with a time of 9: 32.3.

Tennis team, l.-r., row 1: Pete Panis, Jerry Spaulding, Bill Foreman, Bob Battisti,

Karl Chesnutt. The tennis team finished the 1959 season with a 5-5 mark
and a fifth in the Mid-American Conference tournament.
Oberlin ended an eight game winning streak.
Blanford Fuller displays the
excellent form which made him an outstanding
senior performer. He spent a great deal of time
helping his teammates improve their game.
Chesnutt rebuilds team
In a year of rebuilding, the Kent tennis squad strug-
gled to a 5-5 season record in 1959. The loss of several
top players from the previous year left Coach Karl
Chesnutt with an experience gap between the num-
ber one man and the rest of the squad. Riding an
eight game winning streak at the opening of the
season, the netters dropped the first match to Ober-
lin, 8-2, then recovered to win three straight. One
cancelled match destroyed the chance to break
above the .500 mark. Blanford Fuller lost in the
MAC singles finals to Western Michigan's John
Cook, 6-4, 6-1.

Mermen post 1-9 mark
A last place finish in the Mid American Conference
relays to open the season was the first indication that
Coach Bill Hoover's tankers might be in for a dunk-
ing in the regular season. Four straight losses were
felt before Kent was able to bag the first and last win
of the season by defeating Cincinnati, 48-46. The
Flashes dropped the next meet by one point, 48-47,
after leading Carnegie Tech until the final event.
Kent lost to Albion, Central Michigan, Western
Michigan, Ohio Wesleyan, Miami, Bowling Green,
Ohio University and Slippery Rock. Some bright
prospects shine through the dismal 1-9 record. Cap-
tain Bill Kantor, Vern Piatt and Dick Campbell will
be returning next year along with a promising crop
of freshmen. Kantor and Piatt turned in consistent
first and second finishes for the Flashes. The frosh
won the MAC relays and posted wins over Miami,
Ohio U. and Cincinnati frosh. Bill Pfeil, Forest
Corey, Bill Pirtle, Joe Weber, Bob Bebiak, Ron
Turbaczewski, and Mike France lift hopes for the
Kent mermen for next year's season.
